The Hawk Mountain Alumni Association is for past and present Scouts, Scouters, and Camp Staff. Membership is free. The purpose of the association is 2-fold:
Those who join can submit their emails and be invited to reunions and types of alumni service projects that they elect to be informed of.
Those without email can elect to submit their telephone and we will attempt to contact those by a telephone chain.
When past and present Scouts, Scouters, and Camp Staff were contacted in preparation of the Council's Centennial Memory Book, many mentioned they would like to see their many friends in Scouting once in a while. Others indicated an interest in being able to help out occasionally without having to bother joining or attending meetings. The HMC Alumni Association is just this, a group of both registered and unregistered Scouts and Scouters who want to get together and help Scouting where they can, when they can.
Please register and tell your Scouting friends about us. [return to top]

The first Alumni Association Service Project will be at 9:00 am on April 2, 2011. It will involve making tent new platforms for 2 sites, and, if enough people show up, other projects. Tools will be available, but if you have a favorite hammer or other tools, put them in the car, you may be able to use them. Kevin Hunecke will be supervising. Those working on the Service Project will be treated to lunch. There will be time after lunch to change clothes.
In the future, Alumni Association members will be contacted when projects are scheduled. They will be asked to respond if they can help out. So that we contact the correct people, we are asking Alumni Association members to provide their email address and indicate which types of events they wish to be contacted for and what special skills they have. Please fill out the registration form. [return to top]
