Congratulations to all these units!

Want a free coffee drink? And a chance to talk story with me? Come to my office hours! This month I'll be holding office hours in Wahiawa on the second Thursday, the 12th, from 4 to 6 PM at Surfers Coffee. The address is 63 S. Kamehameha Hwy, on the main drag right by Olive Ave. You can turn in paperwork, talk about your unit, or ask me about my trip to India! And I'll buy coffee for anyone who comes!
Tickets are now on sale for the Aloha Council 2017 recognition dinner! Come join us on February 3rd at 6:15 PM to celebrate Ka'ala district Scouters Andrea and Jeff Eshelman as they earn the Silver Beaver award, the highest award given by any Scout council to a volunteer. The dinner is only $35 and will take place at the Pagoda Hotel; register at https://scoutingevent.com/104-CRD2017 by January 31st!
Now lest we confuse things, the Komohana arearecognition dinner will also take place this spring--on April 21. This is for just the west side, and will include more specific awards that recognize individual people and units. The District Awards of Merit are presented on this date, as well as cool awards like Boy Scout of the Year and Cubmaster of the Year. Registration isn't up online yet, but keep April 21st open!
See you at Roundtable?

Roundtable is a time of training and fellowship for all district leaders, at the Mililani LDS Stake Center (not the Sage Building) off Meheula Pkwy. The date is January 12 at 7 PM. See you there!

I also want to give a shout-out to the units who earned Journey to Excellence awards in 2016! 


Gold: Pack 167, Troop 24, Pack 166, Troop 179, Pack 564, Pack 864, Troop 164, Troop 488
Silver: Pack 144
Bronze: Team 179

Earning the bronze, silver, or gold JTE ribbon is a sure sign of a thriving unit--these units have completed the worksheet to prove that their budget, advancement, recruitment, and camping efforts are worthy of the Journey to Excellence patch and ribbon. If your unit wants to earn one of these awards, it's not too late. Just download the form for Explorer postsTroopsPacksCrewsTeams, or Ships and email to me.
Troop 316 from Ewa Beach is making and selling chuck boxes for any troops that need one. They look similar to the one pictured. The troop provides them for $50, which is less than their cost to produce. If you want to get one of these, contact committee chair Kim Jacobson at kimjake70@gmail.com.
