What do you really know about Cascade Pacific Council? Ok, outside of the annual Friends of Scouting presentation……. Did you know that in 1994 two Councils merged into Cascade Pacific? Can you name them? Columbia and Cascade Area Councils. What Camp was destroyed when Mt St Helen’s Erupted? Spirit Lake!
But what do you know about other events or stories of Cascade Pacific Council. You know that in 2016 is the 100th Anniversary of Cascade Pacific? Wait, you did not? Well, it is.
There is now a concerted effort to tell the Cascade Pacific Council’s Scouting Story. It covers every Unit, Volunteer, District, Event and tidbit. It can be just like stories listed on The Boy Project. It can also be very simple stories about how to put on a craft for a Cub scout Pack Join Night. We want to hear them.
In the coming days and weeks, the Cascade Pacific Social Media Channels like their Website, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest locations will start to publish these stories. And yes, we are going to have a Podcast. We will even have Video! So, if you are doing something cool, WE want to hear and see it!
So, who is on this Social Media Dream Team? Well, Jim Bergman (CPCBSA Social Media Manager) Jeff Aradine (CPCBSA STEM/Development Director) some guy name Jerry from THUNDERBIRD DISTRICT! And myself.
So, what makes your Scout Unit Cool? Why is your District Awesome? Who has the greatest singing voice in your Camporee? We want to know all of this and Eagle Scouts. What are their projects. We also want to know about Arrow of Light Crossovers. Who is the new Bobcat in your Pack! What was the worst meal you ate at Camp? Yup, we want to know it all.
These stories make up Cascade Pacific’s Scouting Story.
Just so you know, I started this blog in August of 2009. It was just after going to Wood Badge. I wanted to record my history within Scouting. One of the stories I wrote about on this Blog was the 4T Hike the Webelos took just before Crossing over. I will always remember it. Another good story is about Pack 221’s history. Now it is your turn.
Help Cascade Pacific tell their story.
