I know many of you with your Units are already planning a recruiting night or day.  Please let me know if you need any help with anything.  Also have your leader or membership chair email me your plans on recruiting.  Our Goal is to recruit 250 Scouts.  I believe we can do it!!!
As of 9/18/14 - We need 81 New Scouts by the end of the year!
We got Peer-Peer cards that Josh Burd from Troop 304 help design. I have attached a sample on what it looks like.  It is under Peer-Peer Flyer.  So if you see in the White space you can put your Unit information. 
Recruiting Scouts
As you all may know we are always in recruiting for Our Units.  I have attached an Alternative to Recruiting which give ways of reaching to potential Scouts.  Take a look over it.  If you’re a parent of a Scout, for Cub Scouts it is one of the things to do is recruit a friend.  For Boy Scouts they can earn the Recruiting patch.
If each Unit has a goal of recruiting 1 Scout per month we will be a very large District.
