Who Are the 39ers?
A Group of Volunteers
The 39ers are a dedicated group of Scouting volunteers in Northern Star
Council. Named after an old Jack Benny joke, the names and faces of the members have changed since
they began in 1970, approximately 24 39ers have gathered in our Golden
valley Scout council service center twice a month to volunteer their
time on council projects.
Odds are that any materials for our Scouting units that have had to be
collated, labelled, sorted, counted, stuffed in to envelopes or boxes
have been a project of the 39ers.
They have been crucial in putting together School Night for Scouting
material, Unit Charter Renewal kits, Roundtable materials and large
mailings to support Friends of Scouting. To name but a few projects.
The 39ers are looking for additional members to help on these projects.
They meet the first Tuesday and the 3rd Thursday of each month. If you
are interested in becoming a 39er, or just coming by now and then to
help, please contact:

And for those who live on the south end of our council – we could
really use you starting July 2018 when we move in to our new Council
Leadership Center at Ft. Snelling!
