2013 Family Friends of Scouting Presentations

Well it is that time of year again!  I will need to attend each Troops fall Court of Honor, and each Packs spring Blue & Gold Banquet to give the Family Friends of Scouting Presentation for 2013.  PLEASE email me the date, time, and location of these events so I can get them on the calendar.  This is very important for our Friends of Scouting campaign and the operation of our council.  It helps to serve the Adobe Walls district as well.

Re-Charter Workshop

Re-Charters were due in December.  It is very important that each unit that hasn’t already done so, get their unit re-charter complete and into the scout office ASAP!  After Jan 1, if the re-charter isn’t in the office your unit will not be covered under BSA insurance, so PLEASE make a solid effort to complete this soon.  Please call me or the council office if you are having issues with yours.

Welcome 2013

Happy New Year Adobe Walls!  With every New Year comes the rush of resolutions.  From loosing weight, and quitting smoking to vowing to save more money, everyone seems to have a good intentioned New Year’s resolution.  Adobe Walls is no different.  In 2013 I have several I want to see happen.  1) I want Adobe Walls to shoot for JTE gold, but will be happy if we land on silver, 2) I’d like to see at least 2 new Venture Crews and 2 new Explorer Posts (will they be in your community?), 3) I want to see Adobe Walls have 2 district programs in the fall (one Cub Scout and one Boy Scout program such as a district camporee), 4) I want us to develop a solid Unit Commissioner for every unit in the district, AND FINALLY 5) I want to see Adobe Walls excel in Camp Card sales and the fall popcorn sale and lead the rest of the Golden Spread Council.  I hope that everyone will help Adobe Walls reach these goals and then I know Scouting will grow in 2013.  God Bless!
