A message from your District Commissioner

We would like to extend an invitation to all Adobe Walls Unit Commissioners, and anyone interested in becoming a Unit Commissioner, to attend the Adobe Wall Commissioner’s Roundtable to be held at the M.K. Brown Room, Pampa Chamber of Commerce on October 20, 2011 at 6:00 PM. We will answer all your questions about being a Unit Commissioner, talk about the additional need for Unit Commissioners in Adobe Walls District and Council Commissioner Rob Law will provide a fast paced session on what we can do right now to improve our support of Adobe Walls Scout Units. Please Contact Rick Jones, District Commissioner if you have any questions.

After two months on the job……

Hello Adobe Walls! What a ride my first two months have been. With both popcorn, recruitment in full swing, I can say that busy is the word. I have met most of the units and look forward to meeting everyone else soon.

I need every unit to email me an updated leadership roster with contact and email information.  I realize that over the summer and into a new school year that roles change with most units. We need to make sure we have people in place to take the reins so the pack / troop do not lose momentum. It takes parents to make this work and without them, we will be doing the boys of Adobe Walls a huge disservice.

Finally, I want to invite everyone to attend the first district round table on October 20, 2011 at 7pm. It will follow the Commissioner’s Roundtable at 6pm. Both meetings will be at the MK Brown room at the Pampa Chamber of Commerce located at 200 N. Ballard inPampa. I would like to see all Adobe Walls units represented that evening and all parents are welcome as well. I look forward to meeting everyone that evening.

School Recruitment

Fall recruitment is going great!  Adobe Walls has welcomed 195 new scouts during the month of September and we still have a few to go. Let’s get our units active and fill in the needed leadership rolls within the units. It takes the parents to make it successful. We are doing a great job so far. 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.
