February Roundtable

The next Roundtable has been rescheduled for the 3rd Thursday in February. The new rescheduled date is February 21 at 7:00 pm at Holy Family Church. This date is only for February and will return to the normal date of the 2nd Thursday in March. 

We will also be having a "Meet the Troops" night at the February Roundtable. This will be an opportunity for our Scouts BSA troops to meet with the current Webelos and Arrow of Lights and their families to talk a little bit about what to expect following their transition from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA. This event will take place from 6-7 pm at Holy Family Church but we encourage all troops to have a "Meet the Troop" night in your respective communities. This will also be a time for any females interested in scouting and joining a Scouts BSA troop to stop by and learn more. 



Spring Product Sale

The Spring product sale is fast approaching! This sale is designed to help Scouts earn money to attend camp this summer. The Fall popcorn sale helps support the unit and unit activities, whereas the Spring product sale is to help individual Scouts. New this year, the product is being packaged in a distinctive Scouting box that shows that the item being purchased supports Scouting. We will also be allowing 10% return of unsold product. 

There will also be two order dates. This is being used so that units needing more can order more product in time for the April Roundtable or for units that only wish to participate during one month. To order your product, please submit the order form to Sarah Anderson or Mark Landa by the February 15 (product will be available at the March Roundtable) and/or March 15 (product will be available for the April Roundtable). All money will be due at the May Roundtable.
