The 7th Annual Scouting Legacy Online Auction is going to open for business on May 21. This fun event has become an important fundraiser for our District and Council.
We need your help. Items donated from our District support our activities. Can you find items to donate to the auction?
Corporate donors of items and services receive valuable publicity. In 2011, auction sponsors averaged more than 10 thousand impressions.
Popular items include restaurant gift certificates, scouting collectibles, camping gear and much more. Do you have item to donate, or can you help arrange for items?
Scouting for Food chair Deb Kemper reports that our bag drop on Friday went off without a hitch! Thank you to every unit and Scout that participated!
Deb also notes that there a few bags and flyers left over. Contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org if your unit is interested.
Going along with Mr. Dowdy’s post below, the three new Scout cookbooks by Tim and Christine Conners are available at the Council service center. You can also find these resources through sources such as the ones below:

Lewis & Clark District Spring Camporee 2012
May 17-20 @ the Cobb Ranch
The Girl Scouts Scoutana camp area West of Augusta
The Camporee will be a little different this year. The Big Difference is that we will be giving Scouts instructions and demonstrations on basic outdoor Scout Skills in the morning (after flags). They will be having lunch in camp from 12:00 – 1:00. At 1:00 the afternoon competition will start and will be based on the morning instructions.
Each Scout should have a 6-8 foot walking stick or staff in addition to a plastic tarp approximately 8 foot x 10-12 foot in size. The tarp should be waterproof but, if it is not we will work around that.
Each Scout should also have their 10 essentials plus 6 items. Other than that prepare as you would for a regular camporee or camp out.
We will be releasing more information as we get closer to the Camporee as there are a number of items that we need to check out after we have a chance to check out the campsite.

Just received from MRSC Chair Jennings:
Sorry I forgot the time in my first email. I will be there from 9 am until we feel like we’ve done our daily task, kept our honor bright and can sleep guiltless. The dumpster is in place – see you Sunday. Peter
“Do A Good Turn Daily”
More than just words, we will prove that our hearts are as big as our principals again over the next two weekends as we collect food for the Boy Scout Food Drive.
Units all over Great Falls should already know their designated bag drop areas, and all bags have already been given out to units. Tomorrow morning Scouts should canvas Great Falls, dropping off the bags at each house.
Remember: do NOT place any bags in mailboxes.
If you have any questions, please contact the Food Drive chair, Deb Kemper, at 799-6620.
