2006 Annual Report - Mid-America Council


									Heroes are around us every day … some do great things, such as saving another person's life, while others quietly
do small acts of kindness that go unnoticed, but may be just as important in someone's life.

We are proud of all of our heroes in the Mid-America Council - the Scouts who come together on a cool Saturday
morning to collect food for the needy, the single parent who donates time as a Scout leader, the boy who stands
up for what is right when his friends are making poor choices … the members of Omaha's Troop 100 who res-
cued a toddler from drowning, an Omaha-born youth who went on to become both an Eagle Scout and
President of the United States, and two Okoboji Scouts who saved a fellow Scout from hypothermia.

       The Mid-America Council is also proud to announce the following highlights from 2006:

- 3,330 Scouts collected 350,378 food items during the annual "Scouting       - The Council's Order of the
