General - Like and Follow Us on Facebook Posted Nov. 8, 2018
Do you follow our Council on Facebook? We'd like to invite our scouters, friends, and family to like and follow our page, Western Colorado Council, Boy Scouts of America. You'll get up to the minute news, reminders of events, and we love to share great scouting ideas and stories. We'd also like to invite our Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews, and Exploring Posts to share a photo or story with us so we can share on our Facebook page. Please email me your photo (just one please) and a short story. Things like a camping trip, community service project or an Eagle project, and group photos are great! Thank you!
