We've got a lot of things going on in the district, and I wanted to send out a quick email to all of our ADCs to keep you all abreast of them. Would you be interested in a monthly (or so) email with information about upcoming district events, scouting resources, and the like?
Jun 4th is National Trails Day. We're inviting our units to participate with the Pleasant Grove Ranger District. They are hosting an event in Orem. The plan is to meet at the Orem Dry Canyon parking lot at 9:00 AM, and going to work on the Boneville Shoreline Trail.
Our district is hosting a National Youth Leadership Training course the week of Aug 1-6. This is an excellent program for 12-13 year old young men. The course covers leadership and training styles, communications, and conflict resolution. Participants will be able to bring these skills back to their home units, and eventually take them out on their missions. This is a great opportunity to help grow some leadership skills among the young men in your stake. Online registration is here.
The district will hold it's annual business/rechartering meeting in August. We invite all CORs, Commissioners, and District Committee Members to attend. There are a number of open positions in the committee (including a Unit Commissioner for our two non-LDS units). If you have any recommendations, please send me names, interests, and contact information. I'll see that it gets to the nominating committee.
There's a new Commissioner Award of Excellence available from the National BSA office. The requirements are in the current Commissioner Newsletter. We'll talk more about this at the next ADC meeting.
