In memoriam...

Ian Armas Troop-433

Almighty Father, as we grieve the loss of Ian Armas, help us to remember his involvement with Scouting. Show us how he lived the Scout Oath and Law. We ask that you confort us as we will miss his friendship and fellowship.

Donations will be accepted to help cover funeral expenses.






Merger of Councils

On March 21, 2005, both the San Gabriel Valley Council and the Los Angeles Area Council have approved the merger of the two councils into a new, joint council. The joint council will solicit permission to merge from both the State of California and BSA National; both of these entities are expected to allow the merger to complete.

We will strive to keep everyone informed of the process and what lies ahead of us at the District and Unit levels.

In the meantime, please contact your unit commissioner or the district committee with any questions.

Fundraising Thermometer

"Friends of Scouting" is an annual direct-solicitation campaign, reaching out to Scout families, service organizations, and businesses. Friends of Scouting is the council's largest source of income.

It costs our council $250 to provide one year of quality program for each Scout.

What does a Friends of Scouting investment provide?

  • Local programs and activities throughout the council
  • Camp scholarships, uniforms and registration fees for youths who otherwise could not participate
  • Service center that coordinates Scouting activities and provide customer service to members
  • Accident and liability insurance to protect both youth and adult members
  • Professional staff who counsel, guide, and inspire volunteer leadership
  • Camps and facilities available for year-round camping and Cub Scout family outdoor events
  • Opportunities to attend summer camp and high-adventure events
  • Advancement programs where Scouts are recognized for learning and achievement of goals they set establish
  • Distribution and development of literature and training-materials
  • Leadership training for young people who will become future community leaders

We need your help. Please consider making your today!
