January

11 – District meeting FUMC Memphis 6:30 pm

Recharters

Recharters were due on December 15th.  Some are still out; please get those in to the Council ASAP.  Let me know if you have questions.

District Award of Merit

Now is the time to be thinking about which of our fellow volunteer Scouters to honor with this year’s District Award of Merit.  This honor is the highest awards that our District  can bestow upon on a fellow Scouter, for service to youth.  Please take a moment and go here: http://www.goldenspread.org/Forms/District%20Award%20of%20Merit.pdf  to review the qualifications for, and to download the nomination form.  Nominations for the District Award of Merit are due to Gaylyne no later than January 30. 

Friends of Scouting

It’s time to schedule your unit’s Family Friends of Scouting presentation.  Without this financial support from our leaders and our scouting families, the Golden Spread Council would not be able to provide the quality programs, training and facilities you expect, for our scouts.  Plan on having a Family Friends of Scouting presentation at your next pack meeting, Blue and Gold or troop court of honor.  Call Gaylyne  at 806-779-2805 to schedule a presentation.

District Committee

A nominating committee has been identified to recruit new District Committee Members that are needed.  Congratualations to Fred Leighton Sr for accepting the Advancement Chair, and George Hall for accepting Finance Chair.  Thank you for what you do for Scouting in Santa Fe District.

Merit Badge University

Does your leaders and boys plan on attending Merit Badge University?  There are a lot of opportunities for adults and youth.  Here is the link for youth: http://www.goldenspread.org/Programs/Forms/2011MeritBadgeUniversityInformationAndRegForms.pdf
