District Calendar

Round Table is every second Tuesday of the month at First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethtown. It begins at 7:00 PM. We do not have Roundtable in January or June.

BOY SCOUT LEADERS: Due to the inability to access our camping area for the Fall Camp-O-Ree this weekend (October 13-15) due to flooding, we are forced to cancel the event. We will still do Punkin Chunkin at the Spring Camp-O-Ree alongside with its theme of a cooking competition. If Troops have paid, they may choose to be refunded or have their money go toward the 2018 Spring Camp-O-Ree or any district event.

Boy Scout Camp-O-Ree October 13-15 Eagle Pass- Grayson County

Charter Renewal (Recharter) focus of September Roundtable

At the monthly Roundtable for September (September 12, 2017 at 7pm, First Presbyterian Church in Elizabethtown) we will be having a joint session to discuss the 2018 Charter Renewal Process.

There will be a few changes from previous years and for our new friends in Marion, Washington, Nelson, and Taylor Counties we especially want to invite you to this event to learn how we operate the annual recharter in the Lincoln Trail District. We are all about making the process streamlined and easy for your team! Online or paper…we want it to be a smooth process.

We ask that the leadership in your Unit who deals with this process, as well as your Chartering Organizational Representative and Unit Treasurer come!

Pizza, chips, and drinks will be provided! We will also be highlighting the accomplishments of our Day Camp Staff, passing out Day Camp patches and ribbons, and any other accolades. We still have many who participated in the District Pinewood Derby who have not picked up their patch.

Recharter is a critical function of the District. With nearly 100 Units, we are a big place! Just more family to know…see you at Roundtable…where it is always a…GOOD TIME!

Annual First Class Banquet Scheduled for October 19. Senator Parrett to be Guest Speaker

The rank of First Class Scout is a significant achievement in a young Scout’s career. History shows that if a Scout completes the requirement for First Class within 18 months of joining Scouts, he is more likely to stay in Scouting and strive for the Eagle Scout rank. Therefore, it is critical for us to encourage our Scouts to work toward this goal. To help honor these Scouts for this important achievement, we have provided the Annual First Class Banquet.

On Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 6:30pm EST, the annual First Class Banquet will be held at White Mills Christian Camp (154 Old KY Hwy 84, White Mills, KY). This banquet honors all Scouts who achieved First Class Rank between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017. These Scouts will be guests of the banquet (no charge) of the Awsu Netopolis Chapter of the Order of the Arrow Lodge.  Two adults, parents or Adult Leaders may attend at a cost of $5.00 per person per Scout. Others may attend at the cost of $10.00 per person.

Reservations must be made to Ron Heller, Chapter Advisor and District Camping Chairman, by Friday, October 13, 2017. Payment must accompany the reservation form. A $5 late fee is will required for all reservations after October 13, 2017. Registrations may be mailed to: First Class Banquet, PO Box 113 White Mills, KY 42788-0113. Contact Mr. Heller for more information at 270-862-9828 or rjheller@windstream.net. If you are an OA Member and want to come help serve, please contact Mr. Ron as well!

 

YOUTH PROTECTION COURSES Y01 AND Y02 HELD EVERY ROUNDTABLE!

Youth Protection Training is a mandatory training for all leaders in Scouting. We hold both Youth Protection Training and Venturing Youth Protection Training each month at Roundtable beginning at 6pm. Your Unit will not be able to recharter without 100% Youth Protection Trained adults.

Youth Protection Training is critical in the Boy Scouts of America. It serves as the front-line defense against verbal, physical, and emotional abuse in our organization. It also serves as an educational tool for volunteers and staff, teaching best practices.
