It’s not too early to think about Father’s Day!

Make a donation today of $25 using the link below and we will send this original Scouting Father’s Day Card to the recipient of your choice. Celebrate the father, grandpa, Scouting mentor or father-like figure in your life while also supporting local Scouting! All money from this fundraiser will go towards the Cahokia Mounds Friends of Scouting which enables us to provide services to our local Scouts.

We need all orders by June 6th so that there is plenty of time to print and ship your cards to loved ones so sign up today! https://scoutingevent.com/312-46767

Cahokia Mounds District Regular Meetings

Roundtable, OA Chapter Meeting, Venturing Officer’s Association
The District Roundtables are a great way for adult volunteers (and Scouts!) to get information and ideas to strengthen your scouting unit.
Roundtable is held on the first Tuesday of each month (except June, July, and August) at 7 pm. We are currently holding these meetings via Zoom! Please email cheyenne.vandegrift@scouting.org if you need to get added to our newsletter to receive these Zoom links. Typically we have Roundtable at First Christian Church, 310 South Main Street, Edwardsville, IL.

  • We are currently in need of a volunteer to serve as the Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioner! If you are interested please email Mark Clegg at Mark.Clegg@thrivent.com.

Eagle Boards of Review
2nd Thursday of every month
6:40 pm – 9:00 pm @ Tri-Township park Community Center/Park Office (410 Wickliffe Street Troy, IL 62294)

  • Currently held virtually

District Committee Meetings
Third Tuesday of each month (except June & July)
6:30 p.m. via Zoom! We would love to have more people get involved at the District level. If you are interested in joining our committee please email either Cheyenne Vandegrift or Kevin Buhr.

Commissioner Meetings
First Tuesday of each month (except June & July)
6:30 p.m. via Zoom! The link is the same as our Roundtable Zoom link. Non-commissioners will be put in the waiting room until time for Roundtable. Being a Commissioner is the perfect way to serve Scouting if you son or daughter has aged out but you still really love the program. Our Commissioners ensure that our Units are equipped to serve their youth in the best possible ways. If you'd like to know more about becoming a Commissioner, email Mark Clegg at Mark.Clegg@thrivent.com.

It's Saturday so that means its time to recognize another one of our Superhero volunteers, Laura Hernke from the Boone Trails District!

"My favorite scouting memory so far was the first time I took my son and his den to Beaumont for Webelos Mini Camp. I watched as the boys learned and grew as young men in just a few days. As we were leaving they collapsed in a pile underneath a sign at Camp May that says “To This You Must Return” because they were exhausted from all the great activities that were offered to them. I am looking forward to taking my younger son to his first council camp at this summer.

I don’t know that I have a least favorite memory. Even when an event or activity is not going well or the weather is awful the Scouts always seem to make the best of the situation.

When I signed up for Leader Outdoor Experience(LOE) I had only been a leader for a few weeks. I headed out to spend the weekend outside and camp. The weather was extremely cold and I was not even close to being prepared. I have learned so much about camping since then and I wish I would have been a camper sooner.

Speaking of LOE, it was the most impactful training for me as a new leader. It changed my perspective on camping and made me more open minded to explore what the outdoors has to offer.

I am so happy that my youngest son decided to join Scouts. He was not a sports kid and was having a hard time figuring out what he loved. Scouting has been an amazing experience for him. My youngest son has autism and I have watched him go from sitting on the side lines to fully participating in most activities. Scouting has had a positive impact on my whole family."

Wow. What a story. Thank you Laura for sharing and thank you for all your time and dedication!
