Roundtables for Mohican and Algonquin District Scouters are held the
first Monday of the month at Iona Prep School, 255 Wilmot Road, New
Rochelle, N Y. beginning at 7:00 p.m. Each Pack and Troop is asked to have
one or more leaders in attendance. Why? Because the Roundtable is when the
theme for the next month is going to be discussed, ideas exchanged,
announcements made about future District and Council activities, leader
training courses, and recruiting ideas for units. Adult leaders and parents
are always welcome.
Conservation Resource Guide
Conservation is a basic part of the BSA mission. Scouting embraces
Leave No Trace, requires conservation-related activities for rank
advancement, and encourages conservation service projects to the community.
The new Conservation Resource Guide
identifies Westchester-Putnam agencies engaged in nature and conservation
activities. Organized by District, the Guide is intended to enable ‘one-stop’
access for any Westchester-Putnam Scouts and Scouters seeking sites for troop
conservation projects, nature-related advancements, or outdoor activities
(including William Hornaday Award, Leave No Trace Award, Boy Scout Rank
Advancement Nature Requirements, and Eagle Service Projects).
If you are a Den Leader, Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Committee Member, or
an assistant at any level, if you have not been formally trained, then you
are not doing your best for your son and his fellow Scouts. Here is your
opportunity as a leader to show your boys that you care. Make a commitment
to get trained, and if you are trained, encourage your other leaders to
attend. Our Mohican District will offer Cub Leader Training each month from
September to December.
Good Turn for America
In order to support our nation and our individual communities more, we
have been called on to perform more community service and to begin recording
the service, which we already perform. This is done via a website that
collects the information; please check out the website
www.goodturnforamerican.org for more information. To log onto the website
you will need a password for your unit, which you can get from Jim Lupfer.
For logging your unit's service projects the Council will recognize your
unit with a certificate and streamer for your flag.
