The Boy Scouts of America, Caddo Area Council and Girl Scouts Diamonds Council of Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas are inviting the whole family to join them for a day of Scouting fun Saturday from 10:30AM - 4PM.

Chili will be served from in the cook off area from noon until 3PM, chili bowls cost $5 with all proceeds benefitting Caddo Area Council.
