It is that time of year again where the local Cub Scouts Packs are needing for assistance at their events.
There are a few open houses that the packs do not have the manpower to place volunteers at multiple schools on the same night. Can you help promote Scouts to young families?
Also, on registration night, they are needing Troops to assist the new scouts with building a race car, similar to the catapults in the recent past. The packs would like to have 2 deep leadership and 2+ scouts.
Please review the signup and help were you and/or your troop can!
Yours in Scouting,
NorthStar District Commissioner
