Boy Scouts open house May 18

BATESVILLE — The Boy Scouts of America Hoosier Trails Council, headquartered in Bloomington, has opened the only BSA national supply store in the state and updated the service center to support local scouting units and families, said council CEO Glen Steenberger.

The council teaches character, citizenship and personal values to over 7,000 youth through its more than 2,500 adult volunteers each year throughout 18 counties in south central Indiana, including Ripley, Decatur and Dearborn.

A free open house to view the recently updated facility and expanded merchandise selection is Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1 p.m.

The service center is located at 5625 State Road 46, between Bloomington and Nashville, about three miles east of College Mall.

The shop offers uniforms, camping equipment, awards and supplies, volunteer training resources, a conference room, administrative offices and record storage.

According to Steenberger, “We are proud of our rich history in southern Indiana, and we are excited that our service center honors that history, while providing resources and support for scouting now and into the future.

“During our open house, we will have scouting activities, facility tours, discounted merchandise, as well as refreshments ... Our aim is to welcome current and former scouting enthusiasts to see how our programs are making an impact on families and to see that our teaching methods are as relevant as ever.”

More information is available at www.HoosierTrailsBSA.org or 812-336-6809.
