Friends of Scouting

            2014 is around the corner and as proactive Scouts we are already looking and planning into the 2014 year. While 2013 has been very successful pertaining to fundraising it only helps us one year at a time. In order to provide awesome summer program and other Council activities we need to start securing the funds to continue operations for the 2014 year. Your Unit (pack/troop) plays a vital role in the success of our council. Through Family Enrollment presentations conducted your Blue&Gold’s and Courts of Honor, our council is able to allocate those desperately needed resources which are critical to our council’s survival. We can’t do it without your help. As you complete your annual planning and Unit Annual Calendar, be sure to include when you will hold these recognition events and share those dates with your District Executive so that presentations can be scheduled. The Family Enrollment presentation is quick, less than 5minutes long and will not take away from magic that our youth experience through the joy of recognition for their accomplishments.

In order to keep Scouting alive and well, your help is needed to get your units (pack/troop) Family Friends of Scouting presentation scheduled and completed. Thank you in advance for your attention to this very important aspect of Scouting.

Popcorn Sales Underway – How to SucceedNEW!

If done correctly and with a modest amount of door-to-door sales efforts, you son can easily pay for his entire “Ideal Year of Scouting”. An ideal year would have expenses such as Registration, Uniforms, Event Fees (Spookoree, Belt-loop-orama, Spring Day Camps & Resident Camp) all PAID for! Anything related to Scouting and its incurred expense can be PAID IN FULL, when the Popcorn fundraiser is utilized. This helps provide a valuable lesson to our young one’s as to the responsibility of earning their own way and living the Scout Law of being “Thrifty”. In the materials your Pack/Troop received at this year’s Popcorn Kickoff is everything you will need to be successful. This includes sales forms, prize forms and even door hangers that can be left for those not currently at their residence to help advertise of your Scouts’ sales efforts.

I’ve already received reports of units actively selling and doing very well with the new flavor selection(s) and cool collectable tins being offered by Trails End this year.

How’s your pack/troop doing?    How can we help you to be successful?

Contact your District Executive, Brian Lamirande, 806-220-9158. “Here to serve….”

November Recharter WorkshopNEW!

Unit Leaders

Please mark you calendars now and “save the date” for Thursday, November 7th 2013 for the annual Recharter Workshop taking place at the monthly Roundtable meeting, 7:00pm at St. Thomas the Apostle Church.

Every year ALL registered Scouters renew their annual membership through a process known as “Rechartering”. As our membership is only valid for 1 calendar year at a time (1/1 – 12/31), we must renew each year and this process is vital in keeping your pack/troop/team/crew/ship/post active and eligible to continue operations.

We will discuss the finer points of the recharting process at this workshop and your attendance is necessary in order to receive the information and your re-chartering materials packet. Please contact your District Executive with any questions.

 

Friends of Scouting

            2014 is around the corner and as proactive Scouts we are already looking and planning into the 2014 year. While 2013 has been very successful pertaining to fundraising it only helps us one year at a time. In order to provide awesome summer program and other Council activities we need to start securing the funds to continue operations for the 2014 year. Your Unit (pack/troop) plays a vital role in the success of our council. Through Family Enrollment presentations conducted your Blue&Gold’s and Courts of Honor, our council is able to allocate those desperately needed resources which are critical to our council’s survival. We can’t do it without your help. As you complete your annual planning and Unit Annual Calendar, be sure to include when you will hold these recognition events and share those dates with your District Executive so that presentations can be scheduled. The Family Enrollment presentation is quick, less than 5minutes long and will not take away from magic that our youth experience through the joy of recognition for their accomplishments.

In order to keep Scouting alive and well, your help is needed to get your units (pack/troop) Family Friends of Scouting presentation scheduled and completed. Thank you in advance for your attention to this very important aspect of Scouting.

Journey to Excellence

Want to know how your unit (pack, troop, team, crew, post or ship) compares to the Gold Standard?

Download this year’s Unit Scorecard found at…and find out.

http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Awards/JourneyToExcellence.aspx

We strive to provide our youth with the best possible Scouting experience, and the Journey to Excellence, or JTE program helps us to achieve that goal. The Journey to Excellence program outlined by the Boys Scouts of America, (replacing the “Quality Unit” program in 2010), helps to guide unit leaders by providing “roadmap” to a successful, quality Scouting program. Check out the scorecard that best represents your Scouting unit and keep track of your progress throughout the 2013 year.

Scorecards are submitted during the annual re-chartering process which will be discussed in detail at each monthly Roundtable!
