Scouter Gone Home -- Rest in Peace, Sarah Blackwelder

Posted on Oct 19 2021 - 5:08pm

Long time Volunteer, Parent, Helper, Leader and Inspiration Sarah Blackwelder has departed this temporal realm and entered into joy and a paradise without pain.  Her departure comes after a battle with cancer.   

Sarah was great helper, leader and mentor in Pack 543 and Troop 112, plus a key leader at Cub Scout Twilight Camps for many years, especially helping Amber Martin Mays and Brad Mays when they were Twilight Camp gurus.  Sarah made the positive impression that few can, through her caring and commitment, passion and perseverance, and her joy in all of the experiences of family and friends, including her Scouting family and friends. 

We're not guaranteed to live as long as we would like, but we would all like to live was well as she did, and leave such an impression on so many.  In addition to Amber, Brad, the Tooles, and other Troop 112 and Pack 543 friends, Sarah also leaves behind her husband Steve, as well as her son, Zach, who only recently received his Eagle Scout Rank during Sarah's final Troop Court of Honor on this earth.

Leader's Roundtable + District Committee Gathering on Zoom this Thursday

Posted on Oct 19 2021 - 1:39pm

Leader's Roundtable is an opportunity for any adult leader or parent to (1) learn from each other about how to play the game of Scouting (activities and opportunities and skills for meetings and activities, how to deal with kids and adults, and more), (2) ask questions, get answers and share ideas and with other leaders, and (3) have some positive fellowship with other leaders.  What would YOU like to learn about or talk about with other leaders?  That’s what Roundtable should be (more in these Roundtable Resources).  Sometimes there will be special advance topics announced for Cub Scout Leaders, and/or for Scouts BSA Troop Leaders (this month is maybe a general topic of leadership issues and definitely AAC Program Committee Chair Tina Kerr will be a guest speaker) -- but if a specific promoted program is not announced by a volunteer who will present it, Roundtable will be "Casual Open Question Time" for all who attend ... with no special program, other than what any attending leaders want to talk about.  If you have a special topic or question, add a comment below or contact the District Commissioner or the Roundtable Commissioner or the District Executive, or just bring your question or topic. More about Roundtable in the Calendar Entry.  Need a Login Reminder?  Contact the Webmaster.

Helping Units Put on Unit Programs

Posted on Oct 19 2021 - 1:36pm

Our collection of Ways We Help Units and Leaders and Scouts are listed on the left Menu of our Website and below:

  • Den Adventure Plans.  Cub Scout Den Adventures (they are Adventuresnot merely "meetings") are very critical ... we have lots of ideas at Cub Scout Adventure Plans, including scanned versions of the Den Leader Guides and resources
  • Advancement.  See our Advancement page for resources on Boy Scout and Cub Scout rank advancement and awards. 
  • Training.  Trained Leaders have more fun, get more out of the Program, and help more youth. See Leader Training for ways to become trained and have more fun. 
  • Finances.  See our Unit Finances page for information about fundraising and other finance resources.
  • Scoutreach Assistance -- Camperships and More.  The Atlanta Area Council has financial aid and other resources described on the ScoutReach Resources page.
  • Uniforms and Gear.  Many Scouts and Units need help with uniforms and gear, and so our Uniform + Gear Bank page has a plan for donating and distributing uniforms and gear.
  • Commissioners (Unit Service).  Volunteers who help units beyond their "home" units are Commissioners ... see Commissioner Service for ways we help.
  • Charter Renewal.  Every Unit needs to renew their charter by the end of the year, and our Unit Charter Renewal page has all your resources for that.

Reminder About Cub Advancement Resource Pages Here

Posted on Oct 12 2021 - 9:58am

Here's a Reminder about Cub Advancement Resource pages here, also found on the AAC Website through Cub Scout Advancement.  In our Cub Scout Adventure (meeting) Plans pages -- which has sub-pages for each Rank and then further sub-pages with resources for each and every Adventure, ready for sharing with parents.

There are now 97 Adventures with Family Led Plans (100% of Cub Adventures plus Bobcat) -- plans that are also useful for den activities too, since they provide easily available information for parents and parent leaders -- like useful videos, tips and links, plus simpler plans in a Cub Scout format -- and in a fun, simple and innovative manner to help take the stress out of guiding a Scout in Adventure advancements.  The list of Adventures with Family Led Plans is here, and below -  click on the link you like for a Rank or any Adventure:
