A new year of Scouting begins
HOUSTON – A long-standing tradition of Scouting continues in Houston as Troop 19 will hold open registration Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. in the commons area of Houston Middle School.
Boys and youth and their parents who are interested in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are invited to attend the registration and informational meeting.
Cub Scouts is open for boys in grades one through five while Boy Scouts is open to youth in grade six through 12. A limited number of openings are available at the Boy Scout level at this time.
Curtis Hollingsworth will facilitate the meeting and will serve as interim Scout Master for Troop 19. Hollingsworth is a Life Scout and brings 13 years of adult Scouting experience with him, having served as a Cub Master, Den Leader, Assistant Scout Master, Scout Master and Unit Coordinator with the Pushmataha Council. Pushmataha is comprised of a ten-county council that includes Clay, Lowndes, Oktibbeha, Webster, Noxubee, Monroe, Winston, Chickasaw, Choctaw and Calhoun counties.
“I had the privilege of managing the ten counties for three years,” Hollingsworth said. “Houston has such a long history with Scouting and it’s important that the Scouting program stay strong.”
Hollingsworth said his goals for the Cub and Boy Scout troops is two-fold and basic.
“Do you want your child to have adventures while building strong character and learning how to make moral and ethical decisions throughout life?” Hollinsworth said. “I’m geared toward ensuring a good, quality program.”
Hollingsworth said parents are an integral part of Scouting and a commitment to the program is vital to a strong troop.
“We need the parents on board,” Hollingsworth said. “It’s not just about the boys doing fun activities, it’s building character that lasts a lifetime.”
Troop 19 is chartered by the Houston Exchange Club.
