As school starts back up that means it is time for RECRUITMENT!!! Please email your Pack’s recruitment event details to Krystal and Chris as soon as your Pack has them finalized. When those new scouts join, make sure you have a fundraiser ready for them to begin earning their way to purchasing their uniform supplies, book, camporee registrations, and even next year’s summer camp fees! Make sure your Pack, Troop, or Crew is signed up to participate in our Popcorn & Nuts Sale for 2022!
Our District has some of the most dedicated volunteers serving Battlefield scouts in different positions on our committee:
District Committee Chair – Robert Smith
District Commissioner – Beth Leckrone
District Vice Chair of Membership – Krystal Landis
District Vice Chair of Finance – Matt Phillips
We also have several Unit Commissioners that can assist your unit. If you need a commissioner for your unit, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Our upcoming roundtable dates are:
October 6, 2022**; November 3, 2022; December 1, 2022
Our District Roundtables traditionally occur on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at Freedom Valley Church, except in June and July. If you’re a new leader looking for advice, guidance, or help from another experienced volunteer, this is the perfect place to discuss issues you’re having and figure out a way to solve it. Roundtable is also a great place for leaders of any age or experience level to come gather current information from the Battlefield District and New Birth of Freedom Council related to Camping events, Trainings, and other programs we offer.
**Specific roundtables throughout the year will be held virtually as a Zoom webinar. To sign up for those roundtables, check our council’s home webpage for a link with more information.
