District Leadership Conference
We will be holding a District Leadership Conference this year in Osawatomie, KS, on Saturday, April 28. This conference is open to any and all adults interested in Scouting in Twin Rivers. We will hold several informative sessions concerning Scouting in our district, including face-to-face training for several different positions. To register, click here.
If you have any questions concerning this event, please contact Travis Thompson.
District Fall Camporee
Plans are underway for this year's District Fall Camporee. If you would like to be involved, please contact Travis Thompson.
Roundtable is part of the BSA's continuous training program. It is 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).
Commissioners Meeting is held on the first Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm at the Presbyterian Church in Paola right before Roundtable. All Unit Commissioners are urged to attend every month. No Commissioner Staff Meetings in June or July.
District Committee Meeting
The District Committee meeting is held on the second Thursday of each month. It currently takes place at the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS, 28750 Hospital Dr, Paola, KS, at 6:30pm. No District Committee Meetings in June or July.
District Committee Positions Open
