Scouting in Olathe


Mayor Copeland and Councilmember Ryckman at Scouting Open HouseOn behalf of the City of Olathe, I want to thank all of our Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Scout leaders for your dedication to Scouting and your investment in our community!  In Scouting, you are learning so many valuable lessons about life, good citizenship, and giving back to your community, which will help you serve as outstanding leaders, now and in the future.  You are helping us ensure that Olathe remains one of the best places in all of America to live, and we need your continued involvement and support! 

I know that all of you are very proud of your achievements in Scouting, and I hope you know that I am proud that you are part of the Olathe community.  Through its Scouting Open House program and many other opportunities for Scouts, the City of Olathe is a strong supporter of Scouting and is happy to join communities across the nation in recognizing the many contributions of Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in making our world a better place.

Congratulations to each of you who are advancing in your Scouting career! We want to provide you with the best possible support, and here you will find information and resources that should be helpful to you in learning more about your local government and opportunities to become involved.  It is my honor to serve as your Mayor and join you in celebrating and promoting Scouting and what it means to our community.  Olathe is a great place to be a Scout!

Best regards,                                

Michael Copeland
