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!
