Adult Recognition

It is time to make nominations for District Award of Merit, Robert E. Little Award, and Y.E.S. (Your Extraordinary Service) Award. There are many scouters in Northern Trail District deserving of one of these awards and it is up to scouters in the district to make the nominations. Unit Leaders and Committee Chair are responsible to get the Y.E.S. nominations made.More information and forms.

Friends of Scouting

Scouting depends on volunteers and contributions to make the program run. Please take a moment to schedule a time for a presenter to come to your Court of Honor or Blue and Gold Banquet and make a short presentation about Friends of Scouting. It will only take a about 15 minutes. It 's essential that our local Circle Ten Council have adequate funds to implement this great program with the necessary camps, professional staff and service centers. Without these assets the program could not function. Make your reservation here and someone will contact you to confirm.

Popcorn Exchange

If you have or need extra popcorn, check this page first and see if the "ads" here can help you out. If you want to place an "ad" here, send an email to Popcorn pickup November 22.
