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.
BLUE AND GOLD BANQUETS
We are now entering the Blue and Gold Banquet and Pinewood Derby season! With all of these activities coming up we have an excellent opportunity to deliver the promises of Scouting. If you would please email Jonathan Stevens email@example.com the dates and times of your Pinewood Derby and Blue and Gold banquets a representative from the district will try to attend your event. The sooner you know these dates the better so the district can make plans to attend on its calendar. The Elk River would also like to thank all of the Packs and Troops who have agreed to allow the District to give our Family Friends of Scouting Presentation. For those of you who do not know about Family Friends of Scouting it is one of the ways that our Council raises money that goes toward operating costs. The presentation is only 10 minutes long and as incentives for donating we are offering special Council Shoulder Patches, and Norman Rockwell Mugs. These presentations in conjunction the generosity of the parents and volunteers in your unit go a long way toward making Scouting successful in our area.
