ROCKFORD – Blackhawk Area Council of Boy Scouts of America will have a “Blast into Scouting” recruitment program at every area elementary school.
Boys from kindergarten through fifth grade can join Cub Scouts. New Scouts will receive a rocket, and can bring it to a Rocket Blast event later this fall.
Blackhawk Area Council includes Carroll, Jo Daviess, Lee, Ogle, Stephenson, Whiteside, and other counties in northern Illinois, as well as three counties in southwestern Wisconsin.
