AUSTIN, Texas (February 1, 2018) - More than 19 Scouts and adult scout leaders will represent the Alamo Area Council at the 69th Annual Report to State gathering in Austin on Saturday, February 3, 2018. Alamo Area Council will join Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venture Scouts, and Sea Scouts from all over the state of Texas to report on the accomplishments of their councils from 2017.

“For the last 5 years I have enjoyed being a part of the Report to the State of Texas. Walking the 1-mile parade route down Congress Avenue side by side with the Scouts is a blast! It brings back memories of when I was a child walking in a parade. The weather has been beautiful some years and cold and wet other years, either way it’s a positive experience for the Scouts and the crowds cheer them on. GO SCOUTS!” says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive, Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council

The morning of, as they arrive for check-in, all registered youth and adult delegates will receive a breakfast at the Stephen F. Austin Hotel and will eat during the program. Following the breakfast, the delegates, as well as other members, of the Scouting community will march up Congress Avenue to the Capitol building. After the parade, there will be a Spirit Rally for all parade participants at the south steps of the Capitol.

Selected delegates from each of the 20 councils in Texas will be seated in the House of Representatives at the Texas and give their Councils' annual reports to Secretary of State, Rolando B. Pablos.

Alamo Area Council will have two speakers present its report on Saturday. Eagle Scout Hunter Beaton of Troop 18, chartered by St. Peter Catholic Church, will off the report for Alamo Area Council. Webelos Scout and first female registered in the Alamo Area Council's Cub Scout Program, Laura Vinka of Pack 380, sponsored by Coleman Company Inc., will conclude.

“The Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council’s dedication to our family scouting initiative, that includes an expansion of our program for girls like Laura Vinka, is bigger than any email writing, social media post, or individual communication on this subject.

Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scouting movement that believed in support for both young men and women, once said the real way to gain happiness is to give it to others. Our desire is to stay on mission and use this spirit of Scouting to do just that! So, put down your tech device and say ‘yes’ to doing your part in service to all youth and join us in our next great outdoor adventure!” said Angel Martinez III, PR Director, Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council.
