Scouts BSA Partnership

American Flag, Flag, American Culture.

The Forsyth-Cumming Optimist Club is proud to partner with Scouts BSA, open to boys and girls between the ages of 11 – 17, in the distribution of flags for our Avenue of Flags program.

In exchange for the Scout members’ assistance in delivering and picking up the flags for our six national holidays, our Club supports participating troops by sharing a portion of the proceeds from the flag program with them.  Scouts BSA embodies our motto “Bringing out the best in our youth, our communities, and ourselves” by instilling in their scouts the values of responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance.

We get assistance with the flag program; the Scouts get funds for their Scouting activities.  It’s a win-win situation!

The troops currently participating in this program are Troop 39, Troop 62, Troop 240, and Troop 14496.

Scout leaders – would you like further information?  Contact Us (select the option Question regarding Avenue of Flags program) and we will be happy to talk with you about the program.
