Award of Merit

Congratulations to Polly McAfee of Troop 433 for receiving this years Award of Merit of the Santa Fe District.  And thanks Polly for all you do for your unit and our District.  The District Dinner was a big success with about 20 in attendance including our Scout Executive Andy Price and Field Director Anthony Escobar.  Big thanks to the VFW and George Hall and his staff for preparing the food for the dinner.         

Unit Recharters

Most of our Santa Fe Units were rechartered on time. Congratulation to the units that have accomplished this!  There is still a couple that has not completed this process yet. All of these unit charters expired on December 31, 2011. If your charter has expired our Council cannot post any advancements for your Scouts.  It is critical that we complete this process as soon as possible! Call me if you need help.

 Friends of Scouting

Without this financial support from our leaders, parents, scouting families and the community, Golden Spread Council would not be able to provide the quality programs, training and facilities you expect, for our scouts.  Your continue support of our Friends of Souting Campaign is appreciated.

Camp Cards

Camp Card distribution is scheduled on March 17th in Shamrock at theFirst United Methodist Church at 9:00 am.  Let me know if you plan on attending this or maybe the one inAmarillo.  We need to get the Camp Cards out and into your boy’s hands so they can start selling.

Scouting for Food

Our annual Council Good Turn service project, “Scouting for Food”, has been scheduled for March 24, 2012. This is a coordinated, Council-wide, one day service project to give back to our communities. All Cub Packs and Boy Scout Troops are expected to participate.  Please confirm you participation with Gaylyne, and don’t forget to give her the total pounds of food collected.  If you cannot do this Good Turn on March 24th you can schedule it another time that works for you community and your unit.  Just let me know your date.
