Boy Scouts of America

Jason Anderson and Luke Stege-Tompsett with the Cornhusker Council of the Boy Scouts of America presented the program at Kiwanis today. The Cornhusker Council consist of 16 Counties in the south eastern corner of Nebraska. Luke is new to the Council staff and talked about the process of becoming an Eagle Scout which only 1 of 100 achieve. He named many prominent men who were Eagle Scouts including several of our recent Presidents, one of our members and Luke himself. Jason has been on staff for 16 years and spoke highly of the program in Seward during those years. A new program is one called “Big Idea” which was carried out at Pioneer Park last year where some 750 Boy Scouts planted 3,000 trees in one day. He also spoke of the Duane Daake Memorial Trap Shoot & Sporting Clays Invitational event coming up at the Oak Creek Sporting Club near Brainard, NE on Saturday, June 6, 2015. Proceeds from this tournament will benefit the Scouting programs of southeast Nebraska that serve 4,815 youth and fund a College Scholarship in honor of Duane Daake.  Mr. Daake from Utica, NE who was active in Seward County and Council Scouting programs, died on November 11, 2014.
