More than 75 adults took classes Saturday to help lead the youth in our area.

The "University of Scouting" training event for the Boy Scouts of America gave adults advanced training to take back to their scout groups.

"It is more things that you can work with, with boys and girls and actually adventure crew we also have girls, so it just gives them a better skills and abilities to put the program together to help the youth," says Richard Dailey the Dean of "University of Scouting", Muskingum Valley Council.

Dailey says it great to see adults give time on their days off to help the Boys Scouts. There are more than 1,100 adult volunteers in our area and Dailey says many of them became scout leaders for a simple reason.

"Well it is about serving the youth of the community and building tomorrow’s leaders the youth of today will be the leaders of tomorrow and that is what scouting is all about," says Dailey.

The Muskingum Valley Council also held a memorial ceremony to honor the 100 trees planted by the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts planted the trees in November to celebrate the 100 years of the Boy Scouts of America.
