The councils that have been significantly impacted includeSam Houston Area Council(Houston),Three Rivers Council(Beaumont),Bay Area Council(Galveston), andSouth Texas Council(Corpus Christi), as well as counties within theAlamo Area(San Antonio) andCapitol Area(Austin) councils. We are working with the leadership teams of these local councils to make sure their staffs and families are safe. We are also getting input on property damage at council offices and camps.

For scouts looking for an Eagle Project or a Troop looking for a service project:

HI, my name is Joe Martinez and I am a volunteer at the Molly Hollar Wildscape. 
The scouts have done some work projects in the past and were wondering if your group  would be interested in working on a project installing an arbor on one of our trails ?   You can reach me on the following e-mail address... Thank you.

Cross Timbers Scouters:

We had a great turn out for the AISD Back to School Kick-off last Saturday.

Sixty-five families, some with multiple scout aged boys, signed up for more information about joining Cub Scouts or Boy Scouts.
(If they were age 14, we could have signed up over a dozen girls for Venturing.)

Nicole Wilson and Chris Bankus will distribute the names and contact information to the units
based on school location, etc.

Please follow up with these families and do your best to make these families feel welcome 
when they attend your unit meeting, fall rally or open house.

Thanks go to Victoria Ship 626 for setting up and signing up the early arrivals, Chris and Kimberly Gaston for taking the mid-morning shift; and Traci McGraw for taking the time on Saturday morning to meet these families, answer questions and be the face of Scouting in Arlington.

Yours in Scouting,

Greg Schadt
District Chairman
