Verdugo Hills Council in the news
“Engel was installed as president of the Verdugo Hills Council on Jan. 21 at Anoush in Glendale. He will chair the council’s executive board and oversee the nonprofit corporation as well as the council’s Scouting program.”
“Kitsinian became a Cub Scout in the Homenetmen chapter in Beirut, Lebanon, at age 8. His family came to the United States when he was 10, and he joined the Homenetmen Azadamard chapter in Pasadena, where he continued as a Scout until he was 21. Kitsinian married Diana Adamian, and they have two boys, Sako and Hratch. Sako joined the Homenetmen Azadamard chapter when he was 8, and his father got involved in Scouting again.”

January Roundtable featured training on Scoutbook and how units can use it to include all participants, parents and scouts, in the advancement process. Scoutbook also minimizes record keeping. Scoutbook continues to add features to its application in the hopes that there will be a seamless communication between Scoutbook and National.
Watch this interview with the creator of Scoutbook.
There are lots of resources online including forums at Scoutbook and these self-made tutorials from Pack 321. Updates will be announced via social media at Scoutbook’s Facebook page.
