A Scout Earns His Way

The fall seems far away, but now is the time to sign up for the fundraiser that has the potential to raise your unit a lot of program dollars:  A Scout earns an average of $7 per bag of popcorn, compared to $2.80 per pizza, and $.50 per candy bar.  So if a Scout sells 50 items, he will earn about $350 from popcorn, $140 from pizza, and $25 from candy bars.  Sign up your unit today for an awesome fundraiser and an awesome year of program: www.scoutingevent.com?15LCCL2015FallPopcorn

Roundtable
Monthly gathering of Scouters from throughout the District sharing information and ideas about activities, projects, outings, and other Scout related topics. 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.
