Membership Goal for 2015

Our Goal for 2015 for Membership is 1,300 Scouts.  This is a Big task to get.  You will be getting more helpful tools in recruiting via emails or on this page.  Here is one idea for all of you.

If each Unit recruits 1 Scout per month, Our District will potentially have 392 Scouts.  

It will take all of us to get this done.  We will be also having trainings at Roundtable for this.  Stay Tune! 


Venture Crew

I am pleased to announce a New Venture Crew starting up.  If you have a daugther between 14-20 years of age then this is for you.  For more information please email me.  tj.cordero@scouting.org


Friends Of Scouting Season is HERE!!!

Be on the look out for Our FOS Crew coming to Your Unit.  This is an oppurtunity to help Our District out.

Our Goal this year is $38,900.  Below is the breakdown for each Campaign.

Scouter :        $2,500 

Family :          $16,000 (Traditional Packs & Troops)

(22 Units = $727.27 so say $800 Per Unit)

LDS :              $13,400  ($1,500 per Ward)

Community:   $7,000 

Total:              $38,900

  2. For the LDS side, keep March 28, 2015 open since The LDS Little Philmont is scheduled.   More info to follow
  3. Please conduct your visits and log immediately under UVTS.  We have a week left before the changeover from UVTS to Commissioner Tools.  Once Commissioner Tools is online, Please conduct a detailed Assessment of your units and use the Commissioner tools to document since the new standard is 6 visits with one of the visits being a detailed assessment.
  4. The District Dinner is this Wednesday.  Please join us in recognizing our volunteers and district Eagle scouts for the past year.

For those getting their Eagle rank

As a special Aloha Council recognition of his fine achievement, we would like to feature your son on our “Eagle Scouts Wall of Honor” at our Council Service Center.

If you choose to participate, Stan Wright Photography will take a complimentary 8” x 10” photo of your son. Please be sure that your son has sewn on his Eagle badge before taking the photo.  The photo will be displayed on our Honor Wall and given to you to keep after it has been prominently displayed for a period of time. You may contact Stan Wright at 352-6197 to make arrangements so we can showcase your son. 

We also encourage you to send your Eagle Court of Honor invitation to the National Eagle Scout Association, Aloha Chapter.  This committee would be pleased to send you a congratulatory certificate, and if scheduling permits, a representative would be honored to attend your Court of Honor to make the presentation. Please forward all information to Marilyn Fowler at the council address or Marilyn.fowler@scouting.org.
