Crescent Bay Area Council Newsletters         

          The date of the first Crescent Bay Council Round-Up and who thought up the idea are unknown. The earliest example of a Round-Up newsletter is dated September 1953 and it appears that Round-Up newsletters were published sporadically over the next two years. A high quality edition labeled Volume 1, Number1, was released in October, 1955, and the newsletter remained in that format, typically four pages and published eleven times per year, for the next twenty years,  through the merger with the San Fernando Valley Council and into the Great Western Council.
          The newsletter served many purposes. It highlighted new programs, gave credit to scouts and scouters for their achievements, outlined the calendar of activities for the Council and the Districts, listed new troops and posts and much more. Essentially, the Round-Ups were the best marketing tool the Council had for adult Scouters and the community. Today, they  serve as a detailed chronicle of what happened in Crescent Bay Scouting between 1953 and 1972.
