The Northern Lights School Night Kick-off will be held at 7:00 pm on August 1st at the Pizza Shoppe in Platte Woods (7687 NW Prairie View Kansas City, MO 64151). All units, especially Packs, are encouraged to have leaders in attendance. Information and resources for the various school nights throughout the District will be provided. Please e-mail .img@.img">Anthony Gonnello, the Northern Lights District Executive, with the number of leaders that can attend by July 26th.

Important dates for this year’s fall recruitment campaign:
August 1st – School Night Kick-off

August 14th – Back to School Night for West Platte Dist.
August 15th – Back to School Night for Platte County Dist.

A Scout is Thrifty:
Upcoming Popcorn Season


Popcorn Season is just around the corner! All unit Popcorn Kernels can register by following the link on this page. Selling popcorn is part of the Scouting program. It not only serves as a fundraiser for your unit, but it also helps teach Scouts valuable skills such as working with money, speaking with adults, and working towards a goal. There will be a Popcorn Sellers’ Academy held at the Cerner Riverport Campus on August 12th.

District Day Camp Review

This year’s District Day Camp was a huge success! There were over 120 Cub Scouts that attended camp. Thank you to all of the leaders and parents that helped during the week, and thank you to the older Scouts from several Troops that volunteered to lead stations.

Thank you for your service,
