Back to School Bonus Roundtable ... Rally to this Recruiting Refresher

Posted on Jul 15 2014 - 11:24am

OK, while we still have some Scouts out on the trail (like these Troop 1906 and 631 Philmont trekkers who are crossing Philmont), for many of us, we see the end of summer, back to school, and a new program year for your Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops.  So, unless your Pack or Troop has too many youth and too many leaders, and you just don't want anyone else to join, please attend the Back to School Bonus Roundtable ... a Recruiting Refresher on Thursday, July 31 at Woodward's Middle School.   With Clayton County School "Meet and Greet" events set for August 6, and Fulton County Schools scheduling Open Houses during that first week of August, the time to connect to families is now!  Come to share your best practices and get help getting new members.

Looking for a Service Project for Scouts?

Posted on Jul 11 2014 - 2:01pm

Paul Bailey of Troop 4234 relays this message: "Karen Densmoore (email here) of Angelle’s Hospice & Palliative Care contacted me about getting help from a scout troop for an Assisted Living Facility in Forest Park.  They would love for a scout troop to volunteer their time to do some landscaping for the facility. My troop has several projects we are committed to already and it may be a few months before we could get to it.  Could you share this with other troops and maybe someone else could help Karen out.  Karen will be glad to provide details on what they are looking for and the exact location."
