Alphonse Noe Scouting Fund
Connecticut Yankee Council Establishes the 'Alphonse R. Noë Scouting Opportunity Fund'
May 26, 2015
As Alphonse and Judith Noe's 50th wedding anniversary approached, they were looking for a way to commemorate their love for one another as well as make a broad impact on the community by giving young boys the opportunity to go to Scout camp. We are exceptionally proud and thrilled to share that they made a gift to the Connecticut Yankee Council of $50,000 to establish the "Alphonse R. Noe Urban Scouting Opportunity Fund" in support of expansion of our Urban Scouting programs.
"I have always looked back fondly on my experiences in scouting and appreciate the foundation they provided for interests as an adult. It is my hope that the fund will enable the Council to reach under-served and financially challenged urban youth to provide them with exposure to the ethical and moral values of character that Scouting espouses as well as a chance to have just plain fun in the outdoors,” wrote Mr. Noe.
"This gift will enable our Council to truly expand and grow our programs serving at-risk young people in the neighborhoods of Bridgeport, New Haven, Norwalk and Stamford. We are appreciative of the legacy and example that Mr. and Mrs. Noe leave to Scouting, and of the Board members, volunteers and staff who helped make this gift a reality," says Charles L. Flowers, Scout Executive.
