Posted on Oct 18 2014 - 9:14am

See these excellent photos of Cub 'n' Camp o Ree and these from the OA Trailblazer Event where hundreds got to know the Ordere of the Arrow, and these from the Fun Fair at Starr Park here.  See the new District Flickr Photo Site too ... pssst:  got pictures?  We see the Facebook sites of Pack 1030, Troop 150, Pack 543 and others ... we know there are Cub 'n' Camp o Ree pictures and video out there -- let's share them, and share pix and video of any event!  Contact Keir Chapple or Valerie Baldowski and they can get those posted.  So please share those photos of Campout and Campfires!       "Oh, the magic of the campfire!  No unkind feeling long withstands its glow.  For men to meet at the same campfire is to come closer, to have better understanding of each other, and to lay the foundations of lasting friendship. 'He and I camped together once!' is enough to explain all cordiality between the men most wide apart, and Woodcraft days are days of memories happy, bright and lifelong." -- Ernest Thompson Seton

Unit Charter Renewal Time ... Let's Get This Done and Then Go Have Fun ...

Posted on Oct 18 2014 - 9:10am

It is time to renew all of our Unit Charters over the next couple of months (a/k/a “recharter”), so let’s get that done and move on to fun programs of Scouting.  We’re taking a KISMIF approach (Keep It Simple, Make It Fast) to Unit Charter Renewal, starting with our new Unit Charter Renewal page on our website.  We’ve posted in our Unit Charter Renewal page every necessary item to renew your Charter, updated to take advantage of new https://my.scouting.org/ tools and provide other focus on getting Charters renewed, and each of your “Unit Recharter Champ(s)” has the Internet Recharter code.   See the Recharter Fast Start One Page Plan on our website for the steps you can take right now -- see below:
