“Love Scouting for what it has done, and for what it’s going to do,” declares Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive for the Alamo Area Boy Scouts. With respect for the traditions and history that brought scouting here and a vision for the next 100 years, De los Santos is happy to welcome and encourage all to attend and support the Alamo Area BSA Centennial. Ponce Duran, the current Boy Scouts of America Southern Region Director and Alamo Area BSA Scout Executive from 1997-2006, will be in attendance as will John Coyle, the Alamo Area BSA Scout Executive from 2006-2011.
“Our Centennial Gala is part of the kickoff of our community outreach efforts to make everyone more aware of the story and value of scouting to continue to strengthen the moral, physical, spiritual, and economic vitality of our local community,” says Angel Martinez III, Communications Executive with the Alamo Area BSA.
The Alamo Area BSA Centennial Gala will begin at 6:30 p.m. sharp with registration and social networking against the musical backdrop of the International Trio, featuring Grammy award percussionist Henry Brun. Entertainment and program support is sponsored by Infinity Medical Equipment. “I’ve been out of the scouting community since my days as an Eagle Scout. When I heard about the Alamo Area Boy Scouts Centennial, reconnecting to be involved made sense because their programs work to make a difference in the lives of our kids,” says Dr. John Raimondo, President/CEO, at Infinity.
