Western Skies District

Welcome to the District 18 Western Skies District website - serving Scouts in Riverton, Herriman, and Bluffdale.

We recently learned of a service opportunity at the Riverton Senior Center. Here is a letter from a volunteer at the Center:

"I hope that the BSA will be interested to participate in a project for the senior citizens of our community.

The Riverton Senior Center offers meals, and many activities such as social, recreation, exercise, education and entertainment. Van rides to and from the Center are available. Services are provided to seniors to help them maintain their independence and continue living in their own residence.

Unfortunately, availability of the Center is not sufficiently well known, and we need more seniors to participate and enjoy its benefits."

The Riverton Senior Center is looking for volunteers to distribute informational flyers to local homes. For more information, please contact Dr. Robert Sanchez at phone:760-207-6163 or email: bobsanchez4@hotmail.com

Elder Holland from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints recently spoke to the BSA National meeting about the importance of Duty to God in Scouting.
