The SWFL Council has established February as Journey to Excellence “Good Turn for America” Community Service Month. All units should plan on doing a community service project in February 2017 with the goal of each Scout doing a minimum of 11/2 to 3 hrs. of participation in a unit service project. Below is the participation form which upon completion in recording community service hours on the JTE website and sending the form to the council office, a special commemorative patch with a button loop will be sent to all youth and adults who attain the minimum 1½ hours. Patches will only be available for unit service projects performed ONLY in February.
