Cahokia Mounds News and Current Events

Due to the COVID-19, our district is meeting in unorthodox ways to keep Scouting going! Many units are either meeting virtually or in small groups – socially distanced – and outside. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your district commissioner, Mark Clegg, Kevin Buhr, or Cheyenne Vandegrift if you’re feeling stumped as to how to keep your kids engaged and safe. We want to help!

Please Follow Us On Facebook to stay connected and sign up for our Newsletter above!

We want to engage leaders and parents to talk about Scouting in our local area. It also has resources to help build your Scouting programs and is the first place for updates to be made!

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.
