We have had a spectacular Fall Recruitment Effort
and I would like to thank all of the leaders that have helped in getting new boys involved in our program. Please continue to encourage new boys to sign up. Please send all paperwork in, or call me and I can
pick it up whenever I am in your area. It is important that we get all of the new Scouts in the computer database so that they can earn awards and are registered as members. Thanks again for all of your time and dedication.

SCOUTING FOR FOOD
First of All I would like to thank all of the units, parents, and kids that made our Scouting for Food Drive a Success! Scouting for Food is one of the ways that we teach our Scouts to, “Do a good turn”. So I thank all of you that participated and if you have not done so already please send me a total of the number of cans collected, number of boys that participated, and the number of hours spent on making this drive a great success in providing food for the needy.
I would like to thank all of the units that sold popcorn this year. Selling popcorn helps provide a better program with better materials at a reduced cost to our Scouts. Popcorn helps to provide the facilities and resources available from the council such as camps, events, newsletters, and staff.
