Did you know that more than 1,600 new boys joined Scouting programs of the Aloha Council this year? About 1,400 of them are of Cub Scout age (7 to 10 years old) and 2,000 are of Boy Scout age (11 to 17 years old).

A large number of their parents have signed up to become leaders, as well. Scouting has evolved to remain relevant to boys of all ages in its second century. For more info, visit them at www.alohacouncilbsa.org or call 595-6366.

For Boy Scouts in Hawaii and in the United States, 2010 marks 100 years of Scouting. Each Sunday throughout the year, the Star-Advertiser will present historic photographs and factoids to help commemorate the centennial.
