2011 Council Eagle & Silver Beaver reception

Make plans to attend the annual Council Reception, on Sunday, February 6th, 2011, in Amarillo, TX., so we can honor our District’s 2010 Eagle Scouts, District Award of Merit and Silver Beaver honorees. Go here: 2011 Council Eagle and Silver Beaver Reception to find out more, or to sign up.  Yes, it’s Super Bowl Sunday, but we promise the reception will be over with in plenty of time for the pre-game festivities!

Family 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, Pinewood Derby, Blue & Gold Banquet, or troop court of honor.  Call Steve Knollenberg at 580-651-2615, or Audrey House at 580-652-2085, to schedule a presentation that is convenient for your unit.

Unit Recharters

Most of our Lone Wolf units were rechartered on time.  Congratulation to the units that have accomplished this.  This is a very good achievement for our District!  If you have not yet turned in your Unit recharter, Steve will be contacting you, again.  All of our unit charters expired on December 31, 2010.  If your charter has expired we cannot post any advancements for your Scouts.  For those units which have not completed the recharter process yet, it is critical that we complete this process as soon as possible!

Scouting’s Birthday 1910-2011 -Scout Sunday & Sabbath Activities

Scouting’s 101st anniversary is a remarkable milestone & we should be celebrating it, and sharing it with our Chartering Organizations and communities.  I want to strongly encourage all of our District’s units to plan and conduct Scout Sunday, or Sabbath, activities in our local communities, sometime in February.  Scouting’s 101st anniversary week of February 6th through the 12th is the ideal time, but it can be any Sunday during the month.  It is a wonderful way to celebrate and share our scouting heritage with our communities and chartering organizations.  It is the ideal time to present your unit’s 2011 Charter, to your chartering organization.

2011 Merit Badge University Recap

It was great to see so many of our Scouts and leaders at the Merit Badge University!  Don’t forget to finish any remaining requirements and get the signed, completed merit badge cards, and advancement reports, submitted to the Council Service Center.

Scouting for Food

Our annual Council Good Turn service project, “Scouting for Food”, has been scheduled for March, 2011.  Hopefully, there will not be a blizzard this year!  This is a coordinated, Council-wide, one day service project to give back to our communities.  All Cub Packs, Boy Scout Troops & Venturing Crews are expected to participate.
