I am your new District Executive

Hello Adobe Walls! My name is Eric Byrne and I am excited to introduce myself as the new District Executive for the Adobe Walls district. I have been on the job for almost one month and feel good about where the district is going. I have met so many awesome volunteers and will continue to reach out and offer each one of you the assistance you may need to build a successful unit.  I’m not here to change the district but to strengthen and support the units so we can provide a service to boys all over the panhandle.

A little about me, I am 41 years old and the father of an 11 year old daughter and 8 year old son and 17 year old step-son. My wife, Lori, works for the Pampa Chamber of Commerce and we have lived in Pampa for nearly 9 months. My previous experience was in law enforcement and I still hold an advanced peace officers license. I am a Brotherhood member of the OA and an Eagle Scout. I want to see every boy have the opportunity to reach the highest level of success in their scouting career. I am passionate about scouting and remember that without my parents and the dedicated adult leaders that surrounded me as a boy, I would never have made it.

I am completely open to any ideas that you might have to grow our district. Please feel free to call or email me. Additionally, I am interested in your unit’s activities; please let me know when you meet, any activities you are planning, and any ceremonies to honor your boys. Likewise, if you have a concern that needs to be addressed, let me know and I will do everything I can to help resolve any issues. Thank you for your assistance and I look forward to meeting everyone.  

School Recruitment

Fall recruitment is off to a good start. The month of September is stacked full of boy talks and round-up nights. I already have several packs that have stepped up to the challenge and will be looking further for assistance during the round-up nights. Panhandle, Fritch, Pampa, Wheeler, Mobeetie and Miami Schools are all scheduled in the month of September. Let’s grow our district and lead a new generation of boys into scouting. For more information, please contact Eric Byrne at 806-584-8045 or by email.  If you know of a potential cub scout or adult leader please let me know.

In Memory

The Adobe Walls district lost a father and a leader. Keegan McCain of Miami lost his life in a tragic accident outside of Canadian on August 18th. Please remember his wife, three sons, and the people of Miami in your prayers. It is hard when events like this happen, but I find peace in knowing that we have a scouting family that will help see us through the difficult times. Although I never met Keegan in person, we did speak on the phone and I know he was a very proud father and excited for his boys to be involved in the Boy Scouts of America.
