Around the council We Need Your Submissions! Did your unit celebrate an important anniversary? Did you have an amazing Blue and Gold? Is there a Scout leader who you want to recognize? How about a great camp skit! Or an Eagle Project that was amazing or unique? What about the Scout who saved a life? These are just a few examples of the things we want to hear about. Help us share the Quivira Council Scouting story with the communities we all serve. Submit your ideas, articles, suggestions and photographs to Jinger Titus at Jinger.Titus@Scouting.org.

Troop Planned Fundraiser to Help Pay for Philmont Trip Boy Scout Troop 123 of Newton was at Newton Car Show the first weekend in May, running a concession stand to help raise funds for a trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico, next summer. For 12 days, troop members will hike along the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at the ranch, which has been called the Boy Scouts of America’s “premier high adventure camp.” Cost for the trip is $1,200 per individual and to help with those efforts the scouts sold hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, chips, drinks and popcorn at the car show on Saturday.
