Kamehameha District Updates & News


Hello Kamehameha leaders,

It's summer and we're busy preparing for fall recruitment. Mahalo to all the packs who have shared with us their back-to-school plans and signed up for the Lions program! With almost 100% participation in Lions, it's going to be a great year!

The yearly Trail’s End popcorn sale is an important part of our council’s operating budget. It helps us provide camps on every island, training for leaders, programs like Cub Scout day camp, camporee, and Cub-o-Ree, and our Scout shop and council service center. When Scouts sell popcorn, they take ownership of the experiences that money provides, but they also help our council and district to make Scouting possible. I’d be excited to have your unit join us in this year’s sale!

I’d like to introduce you to our 2016 Kamehameha popcorn chair, Joy Dykes from Pack 297. She’ll be your point of contact for popcorn. Her email is joydykes.scouting@gmail.com.

The most important thing to know right now is the kickoff—July 23 at 9 AM at 2 locations:

Presidents’ Hall at the Aloha Council service center (42 Puiwa Rd., Honolulu)

or

the Waipahu LDS stake center (94-210 Kahualii St.)

 

At the kickoff, we’ll provide training for unit popcorn chairs, and tell you all about the products and opportunities to sell like Show-N-Sell. I’d like to encourage every unit to come to one of these so you can see this year’s products and prizes before you decide not to sell! Remember, popcorn benefits your unit AND helps keep Scouting strong on O’ahu.

 

Here are the rest of the dates you should know:

August 6: Scouts begin taking orders; online sales activated

August 29: Deadline for Show-N-Sell orders and pre-orders

September 24: First popcorn distribution at Oahu Pacific Transfer (94-360 Ukee St., Waipahu)

November 4: Final orders due online (trails-end.com) and last date to return unsold popcorn

November 11: Prize orders due online (alohacouncilbsa.org). Names submitted for bonus prizes.

November 30: Final prize order adjustments for online sales due

December 3: Second popcorn distribution

December 12: Closeout—checks cashed and commissions deposited

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me or Joy with any questions. See you on the 23rd!

 

We’ve scheduled 4 trainings for the Lion Cubs program all over the west side, and I hope to see all our Lions packs at one of them! You can choose any session, as information will be the same. We’ll be giving a complete overview of the Lions program, from registration to the monthly activities, the role of parents, and how Lions are part of the pack.

Want to participate in VEX robotics?
Aloha Council has received a grant to loan a limited number of complete VEX IQ kits to interested packs and troops! The only requirement is to participate in at least one tournament. This is an incredible opportunity to bring your Scouts together and sharpen their STEM skills--but only 8 spots are fast, so if your unit is interested, please register as a team at http://www.robotevents.com/robot-competitions/vex-iq-challenge and then send the following information to Neal at natebara@gmail.com:
  • Your troop or pack number and chartering organization
  • Location where the troop or pack meets
  • Name of unit leader and name of team coach
  • Names of team members and their grade levels

Congrats to Troop and Pack 385 and Pack 9, who have already signed up. We look forward to seeing more representation from Kamehameha District!

That's all for now--please don't hesistate to contact me if there's anything I can do for you.

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.
