Here in Daniel Webster Council in New Hampshire we have an annual
School Night for Scouts each fall. I know that in my district we make
flyers available to every pack to distribute through the elementary
schools and will do a uniformed 'walk thru' of the school when
allowed by the principal. We also encourage the cubbies to wear their
uniform to school a day or two before the scheduled school night.
Some churches also hold annual sign up events for their various organizations
and scouts can usually participate in those (particularly if the church
is a sponsoring organization)
My district also holds a mall show each February in conjunction with
scouting's birthday. This is nothing more than a show n' do in a very
visible place. This serves to get scouting out in the public eye.
Your best source of promotion is the boys themselves---if they're
having fun, they'll tell their friends.
