Scouting For Food

The North Start District gathered 30 pallets of food.  That is almost 40 tons of food.  This is actually more than we gathered last year. Thank you for your service!  
We will have photos on FB and our website. 

Boy Scout Leaders 
For those of you who have given us your 
summer camp numbers, Thank You!
If you have not, please 
contact Mike Contreras and let him know about your summer camp experience.  He needs to know what camp you attended, how many days and how many scouts went.


We are in need of Unit Commissioners

Job description:  The unit commissioner is the connecting link in the chain between the troop and the pack. Often, the same unit commissioner will serve both a pack and troop in the same community.
 
For more information contact Rob Reed.

 

District Eagle Boards of Review are every 3rd Tuesday of each month at the LDS church building on Lone Mountain. If any one has questions about them please contact Kris Alexander at kristopher.w.alexander@gmail.com.
