Roundtable Notes

August 2017 Roundtable Notes

Thank you to everyone that attended August Roundtable.  We had a great crowd that enjoyed a special popcorn treat!

1.  Fall Recruitment/School Night to Join Scouting-Let’s get those dates in!  We have some units signed up already.  I will be contacting others.  I have visited many schools and most are willing to hand out flyers and even allow me to do Boy Talks.  The incentives are similar for this year if your unit achieves a 10% growth of membership as of last year October 31st.

2.  Day Camp was a hit!!!!   I could not be more proud of BOTH Day Camps.  We went over our goal and all I heard were great things.  Thank you JoBeth Roberts and Jonathan Douglass for running each Day Camp.  You both rock!

3. Popcorn Time Again!  Unit commitment forms will be attached to the email for Popcorn.  There will be a training date in Southeast Missouri on August 17th at 6:30pm at Rays of Kelso in Cape Girardeau.  Popcorn Incentives are listed below!

4. Scouts in need of service hours?  Sikeston Rotary Club is teaming up with many local agencies to help out families in need during the Back to School Fair and Food Distribution Event on August 12th at the YMCA from 9:30-12:30.  This would be a great way to help your local community.  If any Scouts would be interested in helping hand food out to local families please contact Cooper McKelvey at 731-695-2359 or cooper.mckelvey@progressivefcs.com
This could also be a way to earn those service hours!
