Marketing Minute Message 
Hey Sagamore Nation!  We hope you have been following us on Facebook. We'll try to utilize our Twitter feed a little more frequently as well this summer as we burst into our FUN camping season. Be sure to encourage your Scout parents to follow us on social media as well. As a unit leader, it can often be difficult to disperse information about everything in the unit, district, and council. However if your parents check out social media as well as our web page, they should be able to find out all about upcoming events and training opportunities.
