November Roundtable

November Roundtable is at 7PM on November 2nd at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church (5409 NW 72nd St, Kansas City, MO 64151). The topics for this month are Recharter and scout games. Recharter packets will be available at this Roundtable.

The 2018 Investment in Character campaign is kicking off soon. In preparation, please provide a date at Roundtable for a family presentation to be made at your unit. Presentations have the greatest impact when made at an event such as a Court of Honor, Blue & Gold, Pinewood Derby, or other event where all scouts and families are in attendance.

Order of the Arrow Chapter Elections

Please encourage all Order of the Arrow members to attend this week’s Roundtable for our annual Chapter Officer Elections. This is a great opportunity for Arrowmen in the unit to take part in an important part of the Order of the Arrow.

Eagle Palm Requirements Update

From Bryan on Scouting:

“All current Boy Scouts – even those who completed their Eagle Scout board of review before Aug. 1, 2017 – are now entitled to receive Eagle Palms for merit badges earned before their Eagle board of review.

Previously, only those Scouts with an Eagle board of review date on or after Aug. 1, 2017, were eligible for these Eagle Palms. Now all current Eagle Scouts can receive Palms for additional merit badges earned before their board.

This is a revision to the change announced on this blog on July 10, 2017. The move comes in response to passionate feedback from volunteers and was approved by the BSA’s National Executive Board.”
