Cahokia Mounds passes 97% of Family Friends of Scouting Goal!

The Cahokia Mounds District Family FOS total ticked past the 97% mark with the help of our families who called and mailed in gifts over the last month! As of June 29, our families have raised $43,890 to support maintaining and growing a quality Scouting program in all our communities in our district and council! Also, at the May District Committee and Commissioners meetings, our leadership team presented checks for their contributions to Friends of Scouting.  Thank you for your leadership and your support!

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:

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.
