The Chickasaw Council, BSA, is proud to present the 2020 Friends of Scouting Dinner. We encourage you to participate by sponsoring your table for the annual F.O.S. Dinner, coming up on February 20, 2020.  Our annual dinner is quickly becoming a premier event and our most important fundraiser, and we want you to be a part of this wonderful evening of character.

Funds raised from this event directly support the Chickasaw Council’s mission of serving youth in the Mid-South. Scouting’s programs and outdoor adventures prepare young people for a lifetime of positive values and leadership. Our focus is to build their character and ensure they are prepared for something more: we will prepare them for life.
