Special Thanks!


The Quanah Parker District Committee would like to give special thanks to Robert and Gemma Michell, and KC Hamill for being Family FOS presenters. Their leadership and support of the Family Friends of Scouting campaign have made it a success in 2009. Through presentations at Cub Scout Packs Blue & Gold’s and Boy Scouts Courts’ of Honor, they have raised almost $4,000. All of the money raised, goes to support Scouting programs through out our district.

Additionally, the district would like to thank all Units that have participated and supported the Family Friends of Scouting campaign in 2009.


Junior League “Touch-a-Truck” Event


This is a special event that gives youth an opportunity to learn about and explore Trucks, Vehicles and Safety Equipment. The event will be on April 4th from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at John Stiff Memorial Park in Amarillo. This is a free family hands-on event for our community and a place where children can come and have fun. There will be food booths as well as information about summer events for children in our community. For more information you an call Kelly Norman at 570-6415, or Shelley Henson at 674-2093.


March of Dimes “March for Babies” – April 25th


March of Dimes “March for Babies” is an opportunity for area Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to have some fun while supporting Amarillo’s largest walking event promoting healthy babies.  Scouts will participate in the walk and fun time at Wonderland Park afterwards.  This is also an opportunity for “service hours” supporting our community.  Scouts will man a “fitness” obstacle course for scouts and other participating elementary school-aged youth, present colors at opening ceremony, serve as guides and man water-stops for 5K Run, and serve the community as “litter pick-up crew” during walk and at Wonderland.  Event starts at 9:00 am on Saturday, April 25 at Amarillo’s Thompson Park (24th Street entrance).   Bring your den, pack, patrol or troop and join in the fun at this worthwhile cause.  Scouts will receive a neat patch.
