The Sequoyah Council, Boy Scouts of America is partnering with our local food bank and the residents of our community to fight hunger during the annual Scouting for Food initiative.
Scouting for Food will take place February 10th and 11th at VFW Post 1990 and will serve as the local drop off point for food donations during this event.
The scouts will also participate in fire side and training events during the weekend as well, so stop by, drop off your food donations and thank these young citizens for their dedication and patriotism.
People in our region depend on drives like this to stock local food shelves and ensure they are always able to provide families with the food they need.
The Scout Oath includes a promise to help other people at all times. Scouts in the Sequoyah Council live that promise every day, and Post 1990 is proud to support our scouts and neighbors to help reduce hunger in our area.

Post 1990 was awarded the VFW Bayonet award for having a 100% Membership drive for Fiscal Year 2021.
What is the significance of the White Hat? The answer is that every year Department selects Commanders and Quartermasters that have met certain criteria and gives them a White Hat as an award.
Only a handful are given each year, so it is a significant achievement. For the Commander, it is a Post award as much as an individual award. Without a lot of people doing their jobs correctly, it would be difficult for the Commander to earn his White Hat.
The Quartermaster earns their hat based on their individual performance. The Quartermaster is the bookkeeper of the Post and is audited by the Post Trustees.
In addition, there are a variety of reports that the Commander and Quartermaster have to submit throughout the year,
This is the first time since 2011 that Post 1990's Commander and Quartermaster has earned their white hats. Congratulations.
