Report to the State 2019
The Report to the State was held on Wednesday, February 13 at the Elks Club in Bismarck. The annual event has been sponsored by the Bismarck Rotary Club starting in 1922 (this being the 97th year). Youth members from different Northern Lights Council programs - Cub Scouting, Scouts BSA, Venturing and Exploring give a report outlining what happened in Scouting during the previous year. The official report is presented to the Governor during the Rotary Club meeting and other legislators during a tour of the capital. Thank you to the Rotary Club, all of the participants including Governor Bergum, Gen. Dorhmann and our youth members. Special thank you to Dale Sandstrom for chairing the event again this year.
