As it has been a VERY busy week across the Rocky Mountain Council, we could not be more pleased to have had Terry L. Fossum highlight our Investment in Character luncheon at the Olde Towne Carriage House on March 11. If you didn’t come, you DEFINITELY missed out!
The program attendance included many of the Rocky Mountain Council, BSA faithful, its youth and new community faces. Terry Fossum grew up in one of the poorest cities in America in a precarious environment with constant negativity. As he told his incredible story of triumph and success because of the Scouting program, our audience now has a stronger fire burning inside of them to want to do more and do better to help our youth become the best they can be.
For highlighting our luncheon, the Rocky Mountain Council, BSA gifted Terry a 100 year celebration shirt and a shadow box that contains many of our 100 year anniversary memorabilia items.
THANK YOU TERRY!
On March 7, Cub Scouts from around the Rocky Mountain Council came together to show off and race their prized Pinewood Derby cars. Each Scout had spent many hours in preparation for this exciting event.
The day begin with our friends from Pack and Troop 27 setting up the facility. Soon after, the participants began to arrive with their families and friends.
Each Cub Scout had to go through a check in process where the cars were weighed and measured to ensure they met the specifications allowed for the race. They were assigned a number that allowed the event hosts to better track who was who.
Once everyone checked in and dropped their cars at the Pit, the races began!
There were an impressive number of designs with each of the cars. Dragons, American flags, and rulers all raced down the track. And sometimes there were multiples of a design; for example we had a couple of Batmobiles.
We are excited to enter the 21st century (finally) and excited for you to join us! http://www.rockymountainscouts.org is the new website for the Rocky Mountain Council, Boy Scouts of America!

These Cub Scouts are learning all about Scouts BSA.
The Rock Mountain Council is proud to introduce Terry Fossum, guest speaker at this year’s Investment in Character Luncheon. Terry’s life is fascinating as he began by growing up in the poorest community in the United States. But it was thanks to Scouting that he overcame his station to become a successful businessman, and more.
