Red & White Strip Fundraiser / Trades

Recommended Posts

Good Evening Scouters!!!


For the past year and a half I have been working on a fundraiser for the Batchelder Family Scout Museum & Education Center which collects and displays historic items of the Mid-America Council. With this project we can generate funds to help preserve and properly display the artifacts of our council's past. The fundraiser has now come to fruition and I am proud to announce it:




There will be seven RWS's created for this set. Each patch will represent previous councils that now make up the current day Mid-America Council with the dates they were in existence. They include the following:


Omaha Council - Current patch available for 2010

Fort Dodge Council - 2011

Southwest Iowa Council - 2012

Covered Wagon Council - 2013

Sergeant Floyd Council - 2014

Prairie Gold Council - 2015

Mid-America Council - 2016



The current RWS available is the Omaha Council. A different RWS will be issued each year starting today and leading up to the Mid-America Council's Centennial in 2016! There will only be 1,000 issued per strip. So for collectors, this will be a neat opportunity The donation for the the RWS's is $5.00 each and there is a fifty cent shipping and handling fee per patch. 100% of the proceeds go to the Batchelder Family Scout Museum & Education Center. That will help us to better preserve and display the historic items that make up the Mid-America Council. The museum was opened in 2007 from a generous gift by Anne Batchelder who sadly passed away in 2009.


Since becoming Chairman of the museum in 2008 our wonderful committee has worked hard on developing building up the museum. An activity program was created for scouts to learn about the museum, then answer a few questions to earn the special BFSM Activity Patch! From January to May 2010 3/4 of our museum was on display at the Durham Museum in Omaha for a special BSA Centennial exhibit. Progress was made in improving the BFSM & EC from that experience. This fundraiser helps to move it forward another step. Please help us improve the Batchelder Family Scout Museum!
