Mayor John Ditslear will host the 18th Annual Noblesville Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting to help celebrate Scouting in Noblesville at 7:30 a.m. Feb. 13 in the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds Exhibition Center Hall B, 2003 E. Pleasant St.“Our community has a long tradition of supporting local youth, and I hope you will consider joining us for the breakfast to lend your support,” Ditslear said.

Former Hamilton County Commissioner Steve Holt will be returning as chairman of the event.

“He brings his experience and enthusiasm as an Eagle Scout, attorney, county commissioner and community leader, and will serve as the coordinator of our morning program,” Ditslear said.

Guests will have the opportunity to hear from several youth who are involved in Scouting programs and learn how they benefit from these programs. Although there is no cost to attend the breakfast, Ditslear said guests would have the opportunity that morning to make a freewill contribution to the Scouting program.

“For over 100 years, Scouting has helped shape the lives of America’s youth by helping them develop clear values, strength of character, citizenship, physical fitness, and leadership skills. To assure that these values remain strong in our community for the next 100 years and beyond, we are asking for your support,” Ditslear said.Last year’s event received $34,250 in pledged donations to help offset the costs of programming, supplies and equipment, and training workshops and camps.
