Recharters

Recharters are now past due.  Most have got them in but there are still a few out.  You know who you are, call me if you need help with it.  I will be glad to assist you.

District Meeting

District leadership will be meeting at 6:30 pm at the VFW in Clarendon on January 10.  (Weather depending of course).  Anyone is welcome to attend this meeting.

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. I have some Units scheduled, but need 100% of all units to participate.

Camp Cards

Well it’s that time again and Santa Fe Camp Card is in the making now.  This year we will have our own card I am working to get at least one vendor in every town plus I am hoping to have McDonalds and other chain vendors on it as well.  If you didn’t participate in 2011 you really missed out on a fantastic opportunity and hope you will consider participating in 2012. I will be contacting you soon to discuss the program with the key unit leader and get a commitment to sell the cards. This is a great program that creates NO risk for the unit but you will reap huge benefits.

GET TRAINED!

When you are trained it makes it a lot easier for you to get involved and do things right; and the boys get a better program and a better experience.   All the necessary training is online at https://myscouting.scouting.org/. If you need your Scouting ID in order to log in, please to contact the Scout Office at (806) 358-6500. Also, there will be additional training during the year so pay attention for dates and sign up.
