New Program Year!

And it begins....

The new school year is here!  So therefore, the new scouting year is beginning.

I hope everyone had a great summer and enjoyed summer camps across the area.  I know at least one troop that made the trek out to Philmont this summer and I heard they had a great time!

School nights will begin just shortly and you will be receiving email regarding when those will take place.  In our DE's absence, Adrain Hackett (our council Assistant Scout Executive) and Beth Evans (our membership chair) are both working hard to get these set up.

Once our new DE is in place, we will send out an email introducing him to everyone - so be watching for that!

We have several events taking place right at the beginning of the year that we want you to be aware of, so they are also being included in this email.

As a district, we are still looking for volunteers to help out with membership, advancement, and activities on a district level.  We are also looking for Unit Commissioners in Dade County, Marion County, and Grundy County.  Commissioner training is coming up on both August 27th and September 27th  in Atlanta.  If you have anyone in mind, please contact us and let us know.

For those of you in Georgia, if you did not attend Kick-off, the commissioners have your packets with calendars and they will be available at the first ROUNDTABLE on August 9th.  After that date, you will have to wait to see your Unit Commissioner.    For those of you in Tennessee, Adrian Hackett has your information and he will be distributing those at some point.

Hopefully calendar planning is going well for everyone and you CAN access the calendar online for upcoming events if you do not receive your calendar in time.
