Throughout the country, municipalities with their law enforcement agencies are organizing the annual “National Night Out”. For many communities in the Glacier’s Edge Council this night is August 7, 2012. The municipalities and law enforcement agencies provide a variety of events for families and are looking for community groups to participate. This is a wonderful opportunity for your Scout unit (pack, troop, crew or Exploring unit) to show off Scouting, promote roundup events and recruit new members!
