Revisions to Scouting Our Story, a history of the Mid-America Council
In 2010, the Centennial Year of the Boy Scouts of America, the Mid-America Council published a book documenting the history of how our local council came to be what it is today. Since being printed, some corrections and additions have come to our attention. If and when the council prints a second edition, we plan on including the following information.
