1-We are looking for Volunteers to help with Popcorn Distribution on December 5th from 1pm to 5pm & December 6th from 7:30am to 11am. If you are able to help with any of the 2 days please let me know. Last time we had popcorn distribution Our District represented with 30+ Volunteers. I am hoping we can do this again. The more hand helping the faster it will go. If you do decide to help, remember you must have cover toe shoes and if a youth is helping as long as they are an Older Scout. Please let me know if you can help: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some upcoming training opportunities. You should be able to register for these at the Council website. See you there.

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 right now. We need 13 New Scouts by the end of the year!
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.

Family: $15,415 – Goal: $15,000 – 102.8% from Goal
