‘Scout-o-Rama’ Event on Feb. 2 to Celebrate 103 Years of Boy Scouts

Join local Scouts and supporters as they celebrate the 103rd anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 2 at Santa Maria Town Center Mall.

The celebration will be held in true Scout style with a “Scout-o-Rama” featuring a climbing wall, a woodcarving demonstration and, everyone’s favorite, Pinewood Derby Races conducted by Scouts from all over the Central Coast.

A formal flag ceremony at 1 p.m. will include special guests and a color guard consisting of Boy Scouts from Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. The ceremony will be topped off by the playing of the national anthem on bugle by Scouts and leaders.

There will also be signal towers made out of wood and rope and many other fun interactive events for the public and Scouts.

The Los Padres Council serves more than 7,000 youth in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
