September Roundtable Recap

September Roundtable Recap

Wow what a month! School recruitment, hurricanes, training and so much more.

Congratulates to all of our newly trained Scouters! 5 new IOLS, 4 new SM/ASM Specific Trained and 10 BALOO. We all know that every Scout deserves a well trained leader. Thank you! Image result for a scout deserves a well trained leader

Thank you to everyone who attended our September Merit Badge Counselor training course. And thank you to our Training Chair – Bob Schorstein and our Merit Badge Dean – Darrell Brock for putting on the training. If you missed this class fear not! You can download the form, it must be accompanied with a completed adult application and a copy of your current YPT.

We always need more counselors, take time to read through the list of badges available and think about becoming one.
