February 1st starts Scout Week this year and next Sunday February 8th is Scout Sunday. “A scout is Reverent” is the twelve law of Scouting. To encourage regular practice of religion among our youth and adults, a patch is available to all members of Boy Scouts, including their leaders who wear their uniforms to a unit church and perhaps take an active role in their service or just wear their uniforms to their place of worship. This is usually done on the Scout Sunday, the anniversary of scouting. The 2015 patches are available at your local Trading Post.
Next Tuesday is District meeting and the next Tuesday, February 10th, is Roundtable! So make sure you save the date. Roundtable is a great place to receive training, get meeting ideas, and network with fellow scouters! It will be at the Great Falls LDS Stake Center, 1015, 15th Ave south, will start at 6:30pm, and end around 7:30. There will be refreshments served. One more thing, Big Red and Cubby, the districts new traveling trophies will be in attendance, so bring as many people as possible! The unit with the highest attendance will take the trophy home.
See you all then!

Be advised there is a LOT of snow at Camp Rotary. The snow plow work took 4 hours and is complete. If the going is too tough we may change the program a little so the boys do not have to plow through 3 feet of snow…..no worries. Be sure to bring shovels and whatever gear required to move snow to set up your camp.
To allow Boy Scout leaders more time to prepare for Klondike Derby this coming weekend, we are canceling Roundtable tomorrow night. For Cub Scout leaders, in lieu of Roundtable, there is a Webcast this Saturday introducing the new Cub Scout adventure program. The link and all the info is posted below, and I hope as many Cub leaders as possible are able to attend(virtually of course).
A new Cub Scouting program is launching June 1, 2015, that will be more fun and exciting for boys, and easier to implement for unit leaders. To ensure you are ready to make the transition, a series of webcasts will be hosted on January 17 to outline the coming changes, how to prepare, and when resources will be available.
