Roundtables Thursday April 14th at 7:00PM.
Roundtables are a two-way communication opportunity for all parents, adult leaders and District volunteers. Learn about upcoming events, resources and ideas for your unit. Find a scouting mentor or mentor other scouters. The BSA and Circle Ten are changing things at a rapid pace and it is key for the leaders of Northern Trail (District and Unit) to keep open communication flowing so everyone is in the loop. Newsletters and emails lose a lot in translation and active participation in the Roundtable is a great way to bridge that gap. Have you considered delegating new adult leaders to be the Roundtable Attendee for your unit? You can support your interests in the Roundtable and help your new adult(s) get introduced to the District and Council people and information. Roundtables start with a combined greeting and then splits into 3 groups: Cub, Troop and Crew. This provides everyone with an efficient and interesting meeting. Episcopal Church of the Epiphany Map
