District Pushes Past 50% of Friends of Scouting Goal!

The Cahokia Mounds District pushed well past the 50% mark, with a few more family presentations completed this past week! As of April 14th, the district’s units and families have pledged $25,619 , or 57% of the $45,000 family goal. Congratulations to our District's two units that have already achieved their unit-specific Friends of Scouting goals for 2015: Troop 1038 and Pack 4038, both chartered to the Troy Lions Club! These units, and all others who achieve their unit goals, will receive free rank advancements for the year as a token of appreciation to those families’ commitment to support the Scouting movement. Congrats and thank you for your support!!

Youth Protection Training

Calling all units! Remember, every adult leader in your unit needs youth protection training to re-charter!  The training is available 24/7 in e-learning at  The training must be renewed every two years, so check your own status and ask other leaders to review their training, as well.  Re-chartering will more likely be a smooth, easy process if all unit leaders have their appropriate training completed and up-to-date!

Each month, discuss the upcoming monthly themese of Scouting, explore through resource lists, invited speakers, group discussions, and hands-on activities. The aim of the Scouting Roundtable is to provide the will and the skill to do. If unit leaders have these two things, they can succeed, and continue to do so. The will to do in the form of morale, inspiration, enthusiasm, and vision is distributed regularly. The skill to do in the form of skills, program ideas, techniques, and information is taught a piece at a time. In sum, a roundtable is fun, practical, inspiring, full of skills, loaded with techniques, and brimming with program ideas.
