Lewis and Clark District Committee Training postponed

The District Committee training scheduled for this Saturday, November 22 has been postponed.  The new date will be after the holidays and should be finalized and announced by next week.  I apologize to everyone for any inconvenience.  We will be performing a district assessment over the next two months to hopefully identify more clearly our soft spots.  This exercise should help to utilize this important training to its fullest benefit.  Thanks to all.  The next District meeting is Tuesday, December 2, 6:30pm.  See you there.

Sincerely, Peter Jennings  District Chairman

Wow. Roundtable was great this last week! Many thanks to all who braved the sub-zero weather to be there and participate. Ed Stuart and Sally Dobbins, thank you VERY much for a great time! Thank you especially for the homemade cookies, monkey bread, and spiced cider! I think all who went had a great time and I am hoping to get more next month!
We are also going to have traveling awards for the unit that brings the most leaders and parents. Big Red for the Boy Scouts, and Cubby for the Cub Scouts!
See you all next Roundtable, scheduled for Tuesday, December 9th at 6:30 PM.
