thought it would be appropriate for September to remind you about an
incentive award for boys to get their friend to join Scouting - CD
Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts
may be awarded, and wear, below the right pocket on their uniforms, the
Recruiter Strip shown above
There are NO formal
requirements for these strips. Each Unit establishes the procedure for
awarding the strip. Usually, a Recruiter Strip is awarded to a Cub Scout or
Boy Scout the first time he is successful in getting a friend, relative,
classmate, or other acquaintance to join his unit.
Typically, only ONE strip is awarded to a boy while he
is a Cub Scout, and another may be awarded while he is a Boy Scout. But
there is no official limit.
From time to time there are special Recruiter Patches
issued. I have seen Football Helmets, Garfield, and others.
remember – A boy has to be having fun in Cub Scouting before he will ask his
friend to join.
