Bay Area CouncilBAC 100th Anniversary Celebration 2019

Bay Area Council, BSA 100th Anniversary Celebration

100th Scout-O-RamaIn 2019, the Bay Area Council will celebrate its 100th Anniversary with a year-long celebration.

The original charter letter for the council is dated March 28, 1919. The document is a report from the Galveston Rotary Club to its officers and members with a recommendation to form a Boy Scout movement in Galveston.

As early as 1920, the Daily News, the oldest newspaper in Texas, carried a regular column called "The Scout Roundup." On August 14, 1962, Mrs. Mary Moody Northen donated funds for a permanent council headquarters (where we are still housed today.) She made the donation in honor of her late husband, Edwin Clyde Northen, a longtime Scout who was active in Troop 513.

Thousands of Scouts and their families have been positively impacted by Scouting over the past 100 years and so we fully expect great interest and anticipation as we commemorate and preserve our legacy.

Each month we will host a 100th Anniversary event.  Each event will have its own segment. Collect all 12 segments by attending each of the special events throughout the year.

For more information, contact Aaron Christopher at aaron.christopher@scouting.org.
