We are working on getting banners up for the Spring Recruiting Drive for Cub Scouts.  If you need banners, please see District Executive, James Lennon. Membership is down, so we need to make a push!

The Roundtable is also an excellent source of information so plan on being there next Thursday (5-14) at 7 pm for Roundtable. This months theme will be “Perseverance”.

This summer we will have Day Camp for Cub Scouts, but no Twilight Camp.

Had a great District Camporee last weekend and big thanks for Camporee Chair, John Ninteman for all his work in making it happen.  If you missed the photos from the event they can bee seen by clicking here.

Also, we started a new District YouTube page  Below is our first video posted to it from a skit at the Camporee.

The District Dinner is coming up on May 29th at the Lakeside VFW Hall.  It’s only $20 and you can see the details and sign up by clicking here.

The District Executive and I have been busy.  We have a Good Scouter of the Year honoree that we will be announcing shortly.  We also had a productive Nominating Committee Meeting last week.  And finally, we are making presentations to local service clubs about Scouting.

April District Meeting

As I mentioned in my March update, the Membership Committee hosted a meeting geared towards Cub Scout Membership Chair’s on March 25th.  Had some great information, but unfortunately many Pack’s didn’t attend.  Because membership is the bedrock of any organization, our Membership Chair, Michelle Generazzo, along with our District Executive will be scheduling times at your Pack Committee meetings to get the information to you.  With Spring Recruitment time upon us it is as critical as ever.

bohThis months Roundtable Theme for Cub Scouts will be will be Cyberchip’s.

The Boy Scout Roundtable will be talking about New Scout and New Adult integration into the Troop.

scoutsThe District Camporee is only 4 weeks away now on May 1st-3rd, so sign up!  Camporee Chair, John Ninteman, says he has a lot of fun things planned.  As well, we will be doing the Order of the Arrow Call-out on Friday Night, so don’t miss that!

Speaking of the Order of the Arrow, the Regional ArrowTour will be in San Diego on July 17th at Camp Fiesta Island.  It will consist of a full day of program centered on the Order of the Arrow’s centennial.  See Joe Garcia for more info.

Finally, keep on eye on the new District Calendar for other events, including the Council.
