Annual Boy Scout District Planning Meeting Set

Boone Trails District of Boy Scouts of America, which covers St. Charles, Lincoln and Warren counties, will hold their annual program preview on Tuesday, August 1st 2006 at Lindenwood University Hyland Performance Arena. The Performance Arena is located on John Weber Road, off First Capitol Drive in St. Charles. The pre-opening begins at 7:00pm, with the opening ceremony at 7:30pm.

There are more that 150 units in the Boone Trails district, providing a Boy Scouting program to over 6,000 youth members. These units are sponsored by local schools, churches, and civic organizations. Scouts benefit the local community through service projects, Eagle projects, and area wide “Good Turns” like Scouting for Food.
Information will be provided on 2006-2007 scouting programs, events, activities, camping, training opportunities, advancement and membership recruitment. All registered Boy Scout and Cub Scout leaders should attend in order to plan a well-rounded scouting program in their individual units.
To help facilitate the meeting, unit leaders are requested to bring the name, address and phone number of their unit’s coordinators for School Night to Join Scouting, Scouting for Food, Trails End Popcorn Fundraiser, and the date for Friends of Scouting presentations.
