Trainer’s EDGE

Check out the link above to learn all about this training course the Golden Spread Council is offering to all adults.  Any registered adult Scouter who would like to increase their skills as a trainer/presenter in either the Scouting arena or in your personal life. This will help you if you make better presentations whether it’s in front of your Scouts at a meeting, as a Merit Badge Counselor, Church meeting, Business presentations and so forth.

RE-CHARTERS

If you have not submitted your re-charter paperwork to the office yet, please do so immediately.  If you wait too long, your unit will drop!  If you would like any help completing the charter, feel free to call Jim Anderson (number above).  That is what I’m here for, I’m here to help you!!

District Operations

The Adobe Walls District is undergoing some district-level changes.  Joe Hillhouse is stepping down as District Chairman and Richard Carter from Borger is taking his place.  The Adobe Walls District has not been having district committee meetings, nor roundtable meetings for some time now.  Your district executive, Jim Anderson, is working to change this.  Rick Jones (district commissioner), Richard Carter (district chairman), and Jim Anderson (district executive) are working together to staff the district committee with willing and able volunteers who want to help make this district stronger and improve the scouting program in this area. 

We will begin having regular monthly roundtables again shortly as well as district committee meetings.  The roundtables will consist of a variety of different topics throughout the year but every meeting will have a short highlighted training feature.  These meetings will probably happen one after the other on the first Thursday night of each month.
