Reverent

November District Meeting

James reminded everyone that nominations are due by December 5th for the Silver Beaver Award, which are registered Scouters who have made an impact on the lives of youth through service given to the council. Our record is six in one year, so we can have more than one!

The theme for the Cub Scout Roundtable this month is “Reverence”.  Also, we need more Cub Scout Roundtable commissioners, so please consider volunteering as we need some fresh ideas!

The Boys Scout Roundtable will have Henry Hall there to talk about fishing.  Henry has taught fishing at Mataguay for many years, so it should be great.  Roundtable is always the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7pm.

We had a good Super Training this past month with about 30 people in attendance.  We have BALOO Training coming up on November 14th, so sign up now!

We kicked off the Friends of Scouting campaign for 2016.  Newsletter Editor, John Shotwell stepped up and made his pledege and reminded people that many companies will match an employees donation!  So please see how you might be able to double your pledge!

fos2Last but not least, we need all units to get their registration in.  My local unit Troop 362 has, so way to go!  Click here to get it done!

Merry Christmas!

Yes, we can still say it, Merry Christmas!  Remember the last point of the Scout Law, being Reverent.  Some synonyms for reverent are “adore, deify, glorify, revere, worship, venerate”.

A little background on the word Christmas is from the Middle English Christemasse, from Old English Cristes mæsse, literally, Christ’s mass.  It’s first known use was  before the 12th century.
