With a crowd in attendance of 150 guests, Mr. Hilberto Riverol, National Scout Executive and Mr. Orlando Garcia, Senior Field Executive and Director of Training, were present to invest 26 new members of Unit #27. Those that were invested years prior were bridged to a higher level in the organization.

A short reception hosted by the parents of the Scout Group followed the event. "It is a truly special moment when we see families gather together to encourage their children to become an active concerned and caring member of the community. There were a lot of dedicated Verdes fans at the ceremony and it's great to know that they can prioritize what's truly important in their lives.

It's not a closed organization. Parents should encourage and support their children to become a Scout," stated Shalue Butcher, mother of Tarun, a founding member.
