I want to start by wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and hope everyone has the opportunity to spend time with their families
It has been a fantastic start the our newly formed Gunpowder Falls District. I want to thank all of the Scouters that have volunteered and put on a quality program for our Scouts. The
Wishing all a wonderful holiday season and hoping you spend time with family. In September, the 11th annual Benjies Drive-In Camp-In was held, and in October the first Gunpowder Falls Webelos Camporee. Each event was well attended and provided great programs for out Scouts.
As we move into 2023, there are several programs being planned. Our first Klondike Derby is scheduled for January 13-15th at Broad Creek. Also look for upcoming Merit Badge days, and in the Spring the Gunpowder Falls Camporee for our Scouts, and training opportunities for Scouters.
Each month, our commissions put on a comprehensive Roundtable program. These are held the first Tuesday of each month, and I encourage everyone to attend. By participating you can learn new ways to enhance your programs, and share your successful ideas with fellow Scouters.
Finally, please consider nominating your Scouts and Scouters for an award. This is a great way to recognize folks to their efforts and accomplishments. These will be awarded this year at our first Gunpowder Falls awards ceremony.
Thanks for all you do to support the Scouting Program, and the impact each of you have in preparing our youth for a successful future.
