A New Year!
Another great year in The Black Fox District! Anticipating a new year, I encourage you to keep training up-to-date and attend all posible roundtable and district events. A few things can make a world of difference for our youth.

Scouting For Food
Many district children are susceptible to hunger. The BSA Scouting for Food effort is a great way to work with communities to help many in need. It also teaches our youth the importance of serving others. Scouting for Food distribution day is in February 2015. Register your unit and partner with others to stock area food banks. Make a big difference!

Nine Years Later
Eagle Candidate Jonathan Kelly of Sparta, Troop 128, and his dad, Tom, discovered during work on Jonathan’s Eagle project at Burgess Falls State Park that Ranger Nathaniel Garrison was an Eagle Scout. He earned his Eagle rank years ago, but never received it! Unbeknownst to him, the Kelly’s secured paperwork/materials to present the Eagle to Nathaniel during Jonathan’s Court of Honor. Nathaniel was invited to the Eagle Court of Honor and awarded Eagle as well as Jonathan. Nine years and two days after Nathaniel earned Eagle Scout, his certificate and medal were presented to him - the first official act of the new Eagle Scout, Jonathan Kelly!
