Members of Friends Committee on Scouting are interesting in learning about our Young Friends who are earning their Gold Award (GSUSA) and Eagle Scout Rank (BSA) and would love to send these Young Friends letters of congratulations.
It’s easy to receive a letter . . . just visit the Request a Letter of Congratulations section of our website, fill out the info and submit. The Clerk will send the letter to the Young Friend unless otherwise directed to send to another individual for collection.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for a letter. This allows time for the Clerk to personalize the letter and to seek more information if needed.
To all of our Scouting Friends in the U.S. – We are still ready and able to ship out awards to you. Orders are usually shipped within 2-3 business days after the orders and payment are received. After the orders have been dropped off at the Post Office I will email or call the number on the application and let you know when you should expect delivery of your award.
As long as the U.S. Post Office is open for business . . . I’ll be shipping awards out.

The “Scouting for Peace” scroll was created at the Friends Committee on Scouting display in the ‘Faith & Beliefs’ area during the 2013 BSA National Jamboree.
The ‘Faith & Beliefs’ area theme at the Jamboree was “Peace” and the members of Friends Committee on Scouting turned to the Friends Peace Testimony for their display. A large scroll was made available for the Scouts (youth), Scouters (adult leaders) and other visitors to leave their messages of peace.
Before the scroll was taken to the Jamboree a Young Friends First Day Class in Maryland wrote “Scouting for Peace” in multiple places along the 168 foot scroll.
In 2016 a video of the scroll was created . . . so that it and it’s many messages could be shared more widely.
Enjoy! Feel free to leave us your comments about this project.
