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! 


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
