Scouting For Food Sign-ups-March 5th Roundtable

 

Every Golden Eagle Pack, Troop & Crew who are participating in this year’s Scouting for Food community-wide service project needs to have a representative at the Roundtable on March 5th.  Roundtable is held in the Fellowship Hall on the north side of St. Thomas Catholic Church (4100 South Coulter) at 7:00 pm.  We will select and assign food pick-up areas at the Roundtable.  Scouts have the option of canvassing their assigned area for food on Saturday, March 28th, or putting out bags with a note attached sometime during the week and then collecting food that is set out on Saturday.

 

Family Friends of Scouting

 

If your unit has not made arrangements for a Family Friends of Scouting presentation, please contact Doug Bergman to schedule a presentation at your next Pack Meeting, Blue & Gold Banquet or Boy Scout Court of Honor.  It only takes 15-20 minutes to invite the parents and adult leaders of our unit to join their friends in the Golden Eagle District in making the same commitment.  This year we are planning a special recognition for units completing Family FOS presentations at the May Roundtable.

 

Upcoming Training Opportunities

 

Let’s start off the new year by getting all our current adult leaders trained!  Check out the calendar above and http://www.goldenspread.org/Programs/Forms/2008-9CS&BSAdultLeaderTraining.pdf for information about upcoming training opportunities.

 

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will be offered at Boy Scout Spring Camp (April 17-18).  Although this course is a requirement for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters to complete Basic Boy Scout Leader Training, it is open to all Webelos Den Leaders and other adult leaders wishing to better prepare themselves for taking scouts camping.

 

March Eagle Boards of Review

 

Eagle Boards of Review (regularly scheduled for the 3rd Thursday of month) in March will be moved to Thursday, March 12 due to Spring Break.

 

Hereford Fun Day – Saturday, March 28

 

We will start out the day at 10 am “Scouting for Food”.  After a hotdog lunch in Veteran’s Park, we will race cub mobiles. Cub scouts build their own cub mobile or come and race one of ours. Each boy will race a car and the best times in each division, Tiger, Cub Scout (Wolf & Bear), and Webelos will receive an award.  Race is Saturday, March 28th from 1 pm to 4 pm at Veteran’s Park in Hereford.  Cost is $5.   For more information, contact Monica VanZee (647-1553 or tmvanzee@amaonline.com)
