We also have several Unit Commissioners that can assist your unit. Our excellent commissioner staff is James Bollinger, Melinda Culp, Linda Deardorff, John Helfrick, Anita Miller, Ferd Prehn, Shirley Sanders, and Deb Peiffer. If you need a commissioner for your unit, please reach out to me at christopher.lontz@scouting.org to get started.

Our District Roundtables occur on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at the Brethren Home at Cross Keys in their Gallery Room. 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. Our upcoming roundtable dates are:
August 8; September 12; October 10

Upcoming Events
If your Cub Scout or their Pack is looking for something to do in July, we have our Littlestown area Day Camp July 22-26. Day Camp is geared towards providing a fun-filled, daily program to Tiger, Wolf, and Bear scouts. Program includes STEAM (STEM + Arts), BB & Archery, Nature, Scout Skills, and Sports & Games. Check out more information by clicking on our link to the right by clicking on “Events” and then “Day Camp”

Fundraising News
We’re currently in our last week of the camp card sale. If you’d like to purchase camp cards, contact me at christopher.lontz@scouting.org to find your local unit selling camp cards.

We just wrapped up the intense part of our FOS family campaign and raised the most percentage of goal among the five districts with 78% to goal. Head over to our council home page and click on the “Donate Now” widget to make an FOS contribution to the Battlefield District.

We will have more information coming up regarding our Popcorn & Nuts sale as it becomes available, so keep an eye out for that on here, our Facebook page, and our District e-newsletter.
