So far Conestoga District has sold over $80,000 of popcorn!
Our District Goal is $136,000 so lets keep the motivation going the last couple of weeks of Show & Sells and Take Orders.
Any product you know you will sell via Show & Sell (based on current sales tracking) or are 90% sure you will be able to use to fill Take Orders, please keep and use. Product you know you won't or likely won't sell (in full cases), needs to be returned to roundtable tonight or directly to the Council office before the end of this week.
Sign up events are mostly done but we are following up with schools we haven't been in yet and doing another round of recruiting for units who didn't get the sign-ups needed to hit their goals.
If you have applications, please bring them to Roundtable or let BettyAnn know ASAP to get them submitted.
Questions or details, contact BettyAnn Atkinson

Does your Pack have a Den Chief?
At least 1 for each den?
Does your Troop send Den Chiefs to help Packs?
Boy Scouts need leadership skills and Cub Scouts need youth leaders. We have 19 Packs in Conestoga and not even half have Den Chiefs, let's fix that!

Order of the Arrow
Congratulations to our newest Conestoga Chapter Arrowmen who completed their Ordeals and to Steve Nieman for sealing his bonds in Brotherhood this weekend at Camp Hart.

All leaders on 2015 Cradle of Liberty Council charters must be position-specific trained, along with having current Youth Protection Training.
Charter paperwork is due to be turned in COMPLETED on November 1st. This is the biggest hold-up in completing charter paperwork each year. Please make sure all leaders are fully trained before then.
ALL Youth Protection must be valid through May 1, 2015.
- All assistant Scoutmasters and assistant Venturing advisers must complete basic training. Assistant Scoutmasters and assistant Venturing crew advisers age 21 and older can register as a member of the troop or crew committee if they do not complete their classroom-style leader training.
- All Cub Scout leader training and committee training for both troops and packs is available online at myscouting.org.
- Venturing committee training is expected to be available from BSA National in spring of 2014 and will be mandatory for crew committee members at that time.
