Quanah Parker District Committee & Roundtable

Steve, Gemma, and myself, would like to invite every Unit Leader to attend our new for 2014 Program Agenda. Thursday, March 6th, at 7:00PM is all about a year of Trained Leaders. Each Roundtable will have a half out of breakout sessions for Cub Leader Specific Training, and Boy Scout Leader Specific Training. After 4 Roundtable Trainings Cub Leaders and Scout Masters will be officially “Trained”.

The District Committee is also making final preparations for the Quanah Parker Scouting Show and Do at Thompson Park on March 29th.  This District Event will be a perfect opportunity for all QP Units to show off a special talent to the public, and each other. Wayne Benson will be making a special presentation on the 6th about this event. Don’t want to miss it.

Gemma and the Unit Commissioners will be contacting everyone by phone to try and have an accurate count for attendees. Any snacks and grub are welcome, and encouraged. This year will be a great year of new beginnings and opportunities.

The Key 3 looks forward to seeing everyone Thursday.

Camp Cards

We’ll have a follow up kickoff on March 6th Roundtable, but the sooner you get your cards the sooner you and your unit can start selling.

Camp Cards are a great, and easy, way for your unit to make money for camp and other program activities for the summer. Contact Chase Roach for more details if needed. Everyone is super excited about selling this year, and remember every card you sell puts $2.50 in your unit account. I encourage you to schedule times at Grocery Stores, etc. to sell. Several units made very good money doing this last year. Take their cash and hand them their card. Super Easy, and good exposure for Scouts and your unit. Remember to always be in uniform.
