Scouting for Food

The Council is so excited about Scouting for Food this year.  As you may know we moved it this year to March 28th.  It will be a one-day event where each boy gets the bags and knocks on doors asking for food to help your local food pantry. I should have each Units bags by our Quarterly Roundtable in March.   I encourage each unit to do this on the 28th.  It is important that we teach these young men values and this is a good way to do it.


District Dinner

Santa Fe District Dinner will be Monday February 9th at 6:30 pm at the Cedar Creed Café at 4650 US Hwy 287 in Giles Texas. We will be having Mexican Fajitas with all the trimmings.  Cost is $10.00 per person.  This is the perfect opportunity to honor all our Adult leaders in the Santa Fe District and to have some good fellowship.  Here is the link on the website.

Hope to see all Santa Fe District volunteers there.


Pow Wow

Yea, Pow Wow is upon us again on February 21st.  Pow Wow is the Cub Scout Training event of the year!  You get an entire year’s worth of new ideas and inspiration that will enhance your Cub Scout Pack, Den and Programs.  Here is the link on web site to register.


 Friends of Scouting

FOS is in full effect now.  George Hall is our family chairman and is trained and excited to hit his goal for the Santa Fe District.  I encourage each volunteer to help the Golden Spread Council during this campaign. A major part of the budget covers organizing and serving units and provides our sponsoring institutions with liability insurance. Also, the Council provides clerical staff that handles thousands of inquiries for camping, registration, and problem-solving information. The service center maintains Scout advancement records and one of the finest Scout Shops in America. Plus two great camps that have to be kept maintained.  For more information Contact me and I will get you in touch George.


Youth Protection Training

Save the date: March 21st. We will be having a Youth Protection training in Memphis.  Youth Protection mush be taken by ALL Adult leaders. Here is a link for more information on Youth Protection.

The information to sign up for this YPT will be available soon on the web site.
