Kamehameha District Updates & News


Kamehameha District News


Aloha volunteers!
I'd like to give a big mahalo to the following units for completing the recharter process. If your unit is still working on it, give me a call at 724-8747 to let me know how things are going and see how I can help!
Pack & Troop 201, Pack 3009, Troop 180, Troop & Pack 147, Unit 677, Unit 28, Unit 153, Unit 622, Unit 145, Troop 97, Pack 3189, Troop 100, Pack 3442, Pack 3186, Troop & Pack 385, Troop 135, Crew 2970, Pack 3297, Pack 388
Congratulations to all these units!

Tickets are now on sale for the Aloha Council 2017 recognition dinner! Come join us on February 3rd at 6:15 PM to celebrate Kamehameha district Scouters Darren Cantril and Mel Shiraishi as they earn the Silver Beaver award, the highest award given by any Scout council to a volunteer. The dinner is only $35 and will take place at the Pagoda Hotel; register at https://scoutingevent.com/104-CRD2017 by January 31st!
Now lest we confuse things, the Komohana arearecognition dinner will also take place this spring--on April 21. This is for just the west side, and will include more specific awards that recognize individual people and units. The District Awards of Merit are presented on this date, as well as cool awards like Boy Scout of the Year and Cubmaster of the Year. Registration isn't up online yet, but keep April 21st open!
See you at Roundtable!

Roundtable is a time of training and fellowship for all district leaders, at Nimitz Elmentary School. The date is January 11 at 7 PM. See you there!

I also want to give a shout-out to the units who earned Journey to Excellence awards in 2016! 


Gold: Pack 147, Pack 442, Pack 186, Pack 385, Troop 145, Pack 201, Troop 201, Troop 180, Troop 147, Pack 297
Silver: Troop 28, Troop 9
Bronze: Pack 304, Pack 28

Earning the bronze, silver, or gold JTE ribbon is a sure sign of a thriving unit--these units have completed the worksheet to prove that their budget, advancement, recruitment, and camping efforts are worthy of the Journey to Excellence patch and ribbon. If your unit wants to earn one of these awards, it's not too late. Just download the form for Explorer postsTroopsPacksCrewsTeams, or Ships and email to me.
Troop 316 from Ewa Beach is making and selling chuck boxes for any troops that need one. They look similar to the one pictured. The troop provides them for $50, which is less than their cost to produce. If you want to get one of these, contact committee chair Kim Jacobson at kimjake70@gmail.com.

FYI

Tenure for Training Awards

Unless it specifically states in the requirements that tenure cannot be used for multiple training awards, it can be used.

In the past we said “one Scouter, one position” and did not want to reward those who wore multiple hats. We are more realistic now. If a Scouter accomplished all of the training and performance tasks during the same tenure, they have likely made Scouting better for more youth and deserve recognition.

 
 

Friends Of Scouting Season is HERE!!!

 

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.
