Spring is here, finally! We were so excited by the lovely weather and our upcoming events we just had to send something ahead of schedule to celebrate!!!

Roundtable: We are excited to be welcoming not one but TWO new Cub Scout Roundtable Commissioners! Bill Sanders and Frances Hicks have volunteers to take on this responsibility and we are excited to see how their leadership continues to grow our District! As a reminder, April 6th we will be having breakout sessions. The Cub Scouts will have a guest speaker from Pack 8072 discussing how to start a Hiking Program in your Pack and the ScoutsBSA will be having a speaker from Troop 8031 talking about Gear Essentials. You won't want to miss it! All are invited to join.

Please join us on April 6th at 7 pm via Zoom by following the link below.

    • If you know your unit’s plan for having a Friends of Scouting presentation, please either email us or submit a form HERE. FOS is how we ensure that everyone in our community can be a part of Scouting and every unit must have some sort of presentation scheduled. If you don’t know what Friends of Scouting is, watch this video!

This spotlight is on Pack 8039 in Collinsville! Taking care of our communities and environment is so important and we are so thankful to everyone that pitched in to make this clean up day possible.
