School Night Recruitment

Leaders please let me know when you want your school night recruitment! I have several already scheduled but most are still in the process.  Let me (Jim Anderson) know ASAP so I can schedule a boy talk a few days prior.  These recruitment nights are crucial to continuing the scouting tradition that has now lasted 100 years.  Thanks to all who have already got the ball rolling in their community!

Popcorn Kickoff

This is the MAJOR fundraiser for the scouts.  Every troop and pack needs money to operate and selling popcorn is the way to go.  It’s easy because the council provides all the paperwork and materials needed to sell.  Everything is already organized and ready to go; all you have to do is go ask people to buy!  Selling popcorn can provide funding for a unit for the ENTIRE year.  I remember as a cub scout and a boy scout I sold popcorn which paid my dues to my troop, summer camp, and patches that I earned.  Plus I still had a little extra left over to buy cool gear from a scout magazine.

University of WOW

Are you a new leader and worried you are not qualified for your position?  Do you worry that you don’t know what to do as a leader?  Maybe you’ve been a leader for many years but want to be more prepared to deliver a higher quality program.  No matter how much experience you have in scouting I want to encourage you to attend this adult leader training in Amarillo.  I assure you it will be a high quality program well worth your time to attend.  Be prepared.  Get trained.  Have fun!
