BSA Field Director Monique Taylor relays this invitation to an event to be held May 8, 2010 at B.E.S.T. Academy at Benjamin S. Carson, 1890 Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy. She writes "This is going to be an awesome event that all scouts can benefit from attending. All our scouts will enjoy receiving a free pair of sneakers. The boys at BEST have already received a pair and they love them. Troop 100 is responsible for setting up outdoor scouting activities to introduce the participants to the scouting program. We are asking the scouts to wear their uniforms to this event. This will be a great opportunity to show the positive side of our scouting program." The event (some information on the Flyer attached) is the "Annual Spring Family Resource Fair and Youth Conference in partnership with Fulton County Health and Wellness, Be Pro Active Foundation, Zap Asthma, Converse and Learn to Grow Inc. It will be a fun filled day of learning, empowering and excitement!" Sign up at the Be Proactive Foundation website right here.
