The Ore-Ida Council of the Boy Scouts of America supports over 14,500 youth and their families in Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon providing camping experiences. Their values of leadership, responsibility, patriotism, morals and service to others remains their top priority in growing future leaders.
Last year the Caldwell Lions donated funds to purchase sixteen compound archery bows. This year President Dave Moore presented a check of $250 to Dan Arters of the Boy Scouts to repair the strings on the bows, replace arrows and help maintain the targets. The Archery badge was one of the original 57 merit badges issued by the Boy Scouts of America in 1911. Besides diabetes awareness and vision care, helping the youth is a high priority of the Caldwell Lions Club, and they are very proud to support the efforts of the Boy Scouts.
