Dear Scouters, Parent, Alumni, and Friends
The Cross Timbers District in 2011 had 73 units that retained 70% of their youth from 2010. There were 22 Packs serving 699 Cub Scouts with 70% of them advancing one rank and 36% attending Day Camp. The district served 719 Boy Scouts and Varsity members in 38 troops or teams with 47% received at least one rank advancement, with 33 of young men earning the rank of Eagle, in 2011 and 61% attended a week long summer camp or high adventure experience. 2011 also served 196 Ventures in 15 Crews and 18 Youth in the Arlington Law Enforcement Explore Post. In East Arlington the Longhorn Council Urban program serves 600 Cub Scouts in 8 Packs.
All of this couldn’t have been achieved without your involvement and support
Although presentations are being scheduled, we are asking that during Scouting’s Anniversary week, February 5-11th, 2012, be an organized week of giving to the Friends of Scouting Program. During this time the Cross Timbers District would like to have 100 families commit to participating in the 2012 Friends of Scouting Campaign.
Ways to give during this week:
1) Complete the included Pledge Card and turn in to your unit leader or mail to
Cross Timbers Friends of Scouting 2012 PO Box 54901 Hurst, TX 76054
2) Respond by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org include your
Name, address, phone number, email address, pledge amount, billing option
In the Memory or Honor of box enter your Unit, Cross Timber District, 2012 Friends of Scouting. Please forward e-mail confirmation to the District Executive at email@example.com to help ensure your unit receives credit for on-line gifts.
At the February 14th, 2012 Round Table we will collect and report the outcome of the Week of Giving. Thank you again for your support. We would like to leave your with this quote from Sire Robert Baden-Powell, “No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way.”
Yours in Scouting,
Cross Timbers District Chairmen
