February 9 Roundtable - Cub Scout STEM Activities

Posted on Feb 7 2017 - 6:02pm

The next Leader's Roundtable is February 9 - signups are open (click the link, find your name in the "Scout" dropdown box - in our site, every adult leader and parent is a Scout - and click "attending").  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).   On February 9, Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner Kevin Butler reports that, for Cub Scout Leaders, the activity for the month of February is STEM.  FYI, for STEM ideas, see the STEM/NOVA page (STEM is "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics") and for more, see the BSA Pilot Program page here, and  And for Boy Scout Troop Leaders, unless there is a specific promoted program announced by a volunteer who wants to present it, Roundtable will be "Casual Open Question Time" ... so no special program, but it will be about 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.  

How Successful was your Scout Sunday?

Posted on Feb 6 2017 - 11:02am

Scout Sunday is more than an opportunity to wear cargo pants to church!  Take advantage of the public awareness raised by Scouts across the district and talk with your pastor about scouting.  Ask about potential service projects for the youth, find new volunteers in your community, and invite leaders in your church to join you for an outing to see what they're sponsoring.  -- from Zach Fisher

West Gary, a member of the Board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), and a College Park Resident, College Park United Methodist Church member & Eagle Scout has reached out to us with this message:  "I am on the board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), which operates out of the education building of the College Park United Methodist Church.  The Center Director, Ricci Lewis-Johnson, has asked the church to coordinate a Family Workday on April 8th at 9AM.  The goal is to improve the play area for the children, install a raised garden, and improve the existing raised gardens.  She will be sharing her sketches with us soon, and I expect the church will respond in normal fashion to help as much as they can.  I thought this might be a good service opportunity for the Scouts.  I’m not sure if your Troop is interested in participating, or if you have Scouts who need service projects for rank requirements.  If you are interested in participating, please let me know."  West Gary, TLACP, 1805 Harvard Ave, College Park, GA. 30337, Phone: 404.766.9252.
