Dates for Planning Your Scouting Year – Special Scout Executive Minute

I know many of your units are doing your planning for the next year and so I wanted to get these very important dates out to you so you can incorporate them in your unit activities calendars:

  1. 2017 Cub Scout Recruitment / School Night for Scouting: June 12, 2017 7:00 p.m. at the council service center will be the School Night / Cub Scout Recruitment Training for all cub packs. At this meeting, we will go over all the dates of the fall recruitment plan and get your pack ready to have a successful recruitment night.  Steven Hendry and Amy Taylor will be following up with you to talk about dates for the fall recruitment plan.
  1. 2017 Council Popcorn Sale: August 14, 2017 7:00 p.m. at the council service center will be the popcorn unit kernel kick-off meeting. At this meeting all units participating in the popcorn sale will receive all their materials for the sale along with training and sales tips and sample product.  Steven Hendry and Amy Taylor will be contacting your unit to confirm your participation in this year’s sale.
  1. 2018 Camp Card Sale: I know you are in the middle of the 2017 sale but we are changing some dates for the 2018 sale.  The 2018 sale will kick-off February 1st and run through the end of March.  This will help your unit meet the early bird camp deadlines.  Steven Hendry and Amy Taylor will be following up with you to secure your commitment for the sale along with the number of cards you will want to order.  We will need this information by December 1st to meet production guidelines.

As always thank you for what you do to serve the youth in our community.
