Just before kids begin a new school year, the local Boys & Girls Scouts of America teamed up to recruit potential scouts Saturday morning.
The organizers were posted outside K-Mart in South Abilene handing out candies and pamphlets for anyone interested.
Recruit Carl Kieke said they're looking for more youth and more adult leaders. They understand that recruiting in school may not be as effective.
According to the organizers, being a scout improves social and entrepreneurial skills and develops long-lasting relationships.
