Roundtable – Mark Your Calendar for September 11, 2014

What’s new in the Knox Trail Council?

Meet and Greet the New Knox Trail Council. Come along and hear about the changes in the Scouting program and in our very own council. The three new District Executives will also be present to introduce themselves and outline their plans for their districts. Come along and ask your questions about the direction of the KTC. We will also kick off the rechartering process.

What are Roundtable?  Roundtables provide a forum where all adult Boy Scout volunteers can gather together to learn and exchange new ideas and skills in a spirit of camaraderie. Roundtables are a place to discuss problems facing your units. Networking with leaders for other units often provides the solutions to your problems. There is a wealth experience within the Knox Trail Council. Roundtables are a great way to share this experience and to benefit from it.

We meet in the White Lodge at the Nobscot Scout Reservation on the second Thursday of every month. We start at 7:00pm with a social gathering known as a cracker barrel and we finish with a social gathering, usually at about 9:00pm. Somewhere in between is the program content. Come along and meet other people who are passionate about Scouting. You might be surprised at how much we all share in common.
