THE GOOD WE DID TOGETHER IN 2013
MikeJewell The Good We and You Do - The Yankee Clipper Council provides youth with a life changing Boy Scouts of America program full of adventure and discovery by providing program support to our volunteers, civic service to our local communities, and guiding our Scouts to become tomorrow's participating citizens and leaders.

A tremendous thank you to our volunteers, unit leaders, districts and council members, along with our council staff, for helping deliver the value of The Good We Do. While this newsletter does not provide enough space for me to name everyone who made a difference in the life of a Scout last year, I can point out a few highlights of what was accomplished by the dedicated Scouts and Scouters of Yankee Clipper Council in 2013.
