CALVERTON PARTICIPATION PATCHES - LAST CALL !
Scout Units that submitted their Roster Forms late, after the Flag Pick-Up Day, can now pick up their Participation Patches at the Council Office.
If your Unit has NOT submitted a Roster Form yet, you have until June 30th to do so. After that, we cannot guarantee that patches will be available for your Unit. Don't delay !
CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE FOR EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS - UPDATE!
There was a MAJOR discussion during the Boy Scout Split Session at the last Roundtable about whether the Council Office would continue to issue Certificate of Insurance forms to Eagle Scout candidates that need one to work on a project. The answer is YES. The Council does issue certificates for Eagle projects, if requested. They will put the same clause on those certificates that they do for every other Scouting event that isn't a recruitment: Only registered Scouters that work on Eagle projects are covered by BSA insurance. Family and friends that are not registered with the BSA are not covered in case of an accident. For further information or questions, please contact our District Executive, Bobby Rabbitt.
LAST CHANCE TO SIGN-UP !

NEW LOCATION FOR ROUNDTABLES THIS YEAR!
We are confirmed for our RT meetings for this school year at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, located at 372 Terryville Road, Terryville. It is across the street from Terryville Elementary School, just up the road from St Gerard Majella. There is ample parking right behind the building The only rule is NO COFFEE or TEA. The start time is the same:
7:15 gathering for a 7:30 meeting.
IMPORTANT: POPULATE YOUR "PIN" !
Currently the primary method for new families and interested youth to find out more about Scouting is the BeAScout.org website. Individuals can visit the site, put in their zip code and find out units in their area. When they click on a unit they are given contact information for that unit so they may either call or send an email to find out more.
We realize many of you may NOT be the Top Leader or Committee Chairperson of the unit but we need you to check out your pin at www.BeAScout.org
. Put in your zip code and when the units come up click on your unit and see what information is listed. If the information is the council it needs to be changed to the unit information. Now if it's not populated here is the information you need to populate the pin. Please be aware that Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Crew Advisors, along with the Unit Committee Chair and the Chartered Organization Representatives are the only volunteers who have first-time access to set up the BeAScout.org pin. These leaders will then be able to set up a total of 6 individuals in the unit to access the editing features of BeAScout.org.
