Key 4 Corner

It is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation from my position with the Boy Scouts of America.  This district and its volunteers are amazing and continue to demonstrate spectacular effort toward a stellar scouting program in the Tri-City area.  As I go forth in my career, I wish nothing but the best for all of you and know that you are all shining examples of the leaders and role-models all of our young men deserve.

Until a new D.E. is in place, please direct your inquires to your Key 3 and/or Joseph Curtis (Field Director)
