This event is a chance for Kansas City area Eagle Scouts to meet other Eagle Scouts, build their Scouting network, and enjoy a fun event in an informal setting. All Kansas City area Eagle Scouts and their families are welcome to attend. No reservation is required, and you are only expected to pay for what you want to do at Pinstripes. Dress is casual - no scout uniforms needed. If you have any questions, please email Phil Raine at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there — and bring an Eagle Scout friend, as well!

NESA Gathering Honor Distinguished Eagles
Is your NESA membership current?
Eagle Scouts from around the nation filled the Munn Ice Arena on the campus of Michigan State University for one of the largest gatherings of Eagles ever. Eagle Scouts in attendance heard from NESA President Glenn Adams, astronaut Col. Mike Fossum, and past BSA President Rex Tillerson. In addition, Todd Plotner, a Chicago area Eagle Scout was recognized with the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award. This event highlights what every Eagle Scout already knows: Eagle Scouts are some of the most outstanding members of society today and are as necessary as ever.
While it is important to be a member of the Kansas City Eagle Alumni Association, consider joining NESA as well. NESA provides connections to these distinguished Eagles, supports Eagle Scouts through scholarships and grants, and furthers the aims of Scouting. Check out NESA at www.nesa.org.
