Scouts from the National Capital Area Council Boy Scouts of America (BSA) recently delivered the “2009 Report to the Nation” to the White House.
Each year, the president receives an annual report from BSA that provides information about the group’s success stories and movement. This year, President Barack Obama was also briefed on recent and upcoming activities in the Washington, D.C., area.
“We are so honored and thrilled to be the ambassadors of the Boy Scouts of America in delivering this important document to the nation,” National Capital Area Council executive Les Baron said in a statement. “We appreciate the President’s support of Scouting, and the time he took to meet with us on Monday.”
The Scouts discussed first lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” initiative with the president and celebrated the White House’s dedication to healthy living.
