Current District News & Upcoming Activities
Twin Rivers Camporee 2019 Is Coming Up!
Our 2019 camporee - our "Zombie Apocalypse" - is fast approaching! It is being held October 18-20 at the Cedar Valley Reservoir near Garnett. This event is open to all Webelo dens, Scouts BSA troops, Venturing crews, and Explorer Posts, and also includes late check-in & early check-out options. To register or get more information, please contact Travis Thompson.
District Committee Positions Open
We have several openings on our district committee. If you are interested in serving on the committee, please contact Brock Guernsey or Travis Thompson.
Unit Commissioner Assignments Open
We also have several units looking for suitable unit commissioners. If you are interested in serving as a unit commissioner, please contact Dameon Edwards or Travis Thompson.
Roundtable is part of the BSA's continuous training program, providing a monthly meeting where Scouters learn about what is going on in the District and Council, learn about the coming month's program, ask questions, and fellowship with other Scouters. It is very important that every unit be represented at Roundtable every month, as important information is provided to take back to each unit.
Roundtable is held the 1st Thursday of each month (except June & July) at 7:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church in Paola, Kansas (110 E. Peoria St., across the street from the public library).
Our Commissioners Meeting is held on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00pm at First Presbyterian Church in Paola (right before Roundtable). All Unit Commissioners are encouraged to attend. No Commissioner Meetings in June or July.
The District Committee meeting is held on the second Thursday of each month. It currently takes place at First Presbyterian Church in Paola at 7:00pm. All committee members and Chartered Organization Representatives in the district are encouraged to attend. No Committee Meetings in June or July.
