Happy 100th Anniversary Mecklenburg County Council !!




100 years. A century. In 2015, the Mecklenburg County Council will celebrate 100 years of scouting!  In recognition of our 100th Anniversary, we are providing a once in a lifetime program that we wish EVERY Scout and Scouter in Mecklenburg County Council to take part.  We have a special “Star” pocket patch which can be completed by adding activity rockers by participation in Council and District events and activities. Our 100th Anniversary celebration will highlight programs, events camping, community service, leadership, and training that we offer throughout the years.
