August Roundtable

The August 12th Roundtable will be different.  It is very important that each unit be represented.
The evening will be all communication – and I am not talking about the Communication Merit badge. It will be the District communicating to the Units about Finance, Membership, Program, Training, and Unit Service. The roundtable will also be about the Units communicating to the District  the names of key contact persons and key dates related to these five functions. It really is essential for each unit to be represented. Please 'be prepare' to share the names and contact information of key volunteers in your Unit. See the attached notice. Roundtable is scheduled for August 12th, 7:30PM at the Pantego Christian Academy on Park Row. Kenneth Majka, CIA, CRCM Vice President, Compliance Colonial Savings, F.A. 817-877-9006 fax 817-390-2204

I will be having my first Merit Badge class Saturday September 6th 2014 at Northwest Christian Church 2001 N. David Dr. Arlington TX from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM . There will be some prework before the class and the majority of the class will be devoted to the actual building of the required projects for the Merit Badge. Since safety is key to any woodworking project, my class will be only 8 Scouts to provide proper supervision. Any additional adult supervision by parents is welcomed.
