Investment in Character
We are full swing into the annual Investment in Character Campaign. As of February 16, the Spirit Trail District is at 30% of our $20,795 Family goal, and 58% of our $59,795 overall goal! We are well on the way! Be sure to get your Pack, Troop or Crew involved in supporting the growth of our campaign.
The importance of Investment in Character cannot be over-emphasized. Direct support from families and individuals makes up more than 25% of the Council's operating budget. It is that support that allows the Council to provide resources to our Districts and Units: a dedicated district professional, dedicated registrars, the handling of advancement and Eagle Scout paperwork, Council and District events, Council Camps, and most importantly - support for individual scouts in the form of registration assistance, uniform assistance and Camperships.
Please contact our Family IIC Chair (John Hoye) with the date of your next Court of Honor, your Blue and Gold Banquet, or other meeting at which you will have most of your parents and leaders present.
