District Meetings


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).

Commissioner Meeting

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.

Committee Meeting

The District Committee meeting is held on the second Thursday of each month. It currently takes place at Paola Free Library in Paola (101 E. Peoria St.) at 6:30pm. All committee members and Chartered Organization Representatives in the district are encouraged to attend. No Committee Meetings in June or July.
