2020 Family FOS – Friends of Scouting Unit Campaigns
Each scouting unit is asked to conduct a Family FOS campaign to explain the services of the Longhorn Council to parents and leaders and to encourage them to participate in supporting the costs of the annual operation. Each Unit conducting and hitting their GOAL earns an incentive from the Council. This information and description is explained in detail further down on this page under the heading UNIT INCENTIVES.
