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.
CUB SCOUT FAMILY CAMP
Cub Scout Family camp will be held at Camp Chief Logan on May-2nd through the 4th. This is a great opportunity for all of our Cub Scouts to go camping and experience some high energy program. Please talk to your Cub Scouts and families at your next meeting and make sure that they have their calendars marked for this exciting event. The cost for the event is $5.00 per boy or tag-a-long. Please promote this activity with your fellow scouts and scouters.
DISTRICT DAY CAMP NEWS
The Elk River District is excited to be offering two day camps this upcoming summer. Please mark your calendars for June 9TH through 13TH at Coonskin Park in Charleston, WV and June 23rd through 27TH at Holly Gray Park in Sutton, WV. Please make sure that all Cub Scouts are signed up and registered before May 15th to get the lowest fee possible. The Elk River District Day Camp Committee is off and running with some exciting program ideas to make these the very best Day Camps possible!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
