The monthly Roundtable meeting will begin with announcements and recognitions; followed by Cub and Boy Scout breakout sessions. Roundtable is the best way to find out what is happening at the district and at the council level. Interaction and discussion between leaders is a valuable tool and learning experience. We encourage all units to have at least one person attend the Roundtable to participate in the discussion, hear the announcements, and to receive any handouts and mail in the unit mailbox.
The Northwoods District Roundtable takes place the 2nd Tuesday of the month, beginning at 7:30pm. Roundtable is intended to be 60 minutes, from 7:30 to 8:30. District leaders will be available after for questions and fellowship.Those on a tight schedule may leave. We meet at St Simon Episcopal Church, 717 W Kirchhoff Rd., Arlington Heights. Leaders are encouraged to attend in uniform.
The Pathway to Adventure Council, Boy Scouts of America, is currently conducting its Invest in Character campaign. I think you will agree Scouting is truly an important part of what makes America great. The principles that Scouting teaches are as relevant today as they were when the Boy Scouts first began more than 100 years ago.
By investing in our youth through the Invest in Character campaign, you can help direct young men into a program that stands for what is good and right in today's world.
Please consider your support in this valuable program. Our goal is to have 100 percent of the families participate in the Invest in Character campaign.
Together, we can help deliver the promise of a quality Scouting program!

Please sign up your Pack, Troop, or Crew for a 2017 FOS presentation and make a pledge of support to Scouting at your unit FOS presentation. A strong Scouting program requires good outdoor experiences, trained leaders and financial resources to assure operations and camps continue to be the quality our youth deserve. Your unit support of FOS is part of making Scouting strong. Take a few moments to register your unit and support Scouting at your unit FOS presentation.
When making your FOS pledge remember many companies have programs that will match donations to Scouting. Volunteer hours may also be recognized by employers for a matching gift. For a list of companies that have matching programs visit http://pathwaytoadventure.org/MatchingGifts.
