Commissioners Minute

Think of the Scout Law for a moment. What is the most important work in the entire Scout Law? That would be the word IS. A Scout IS...
Be the Leader and example for the youth, Do Your Best at being all of the Scout Law.

Greetings Lakeview!

2018 is off to a quick start. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with family and fun.

Jeff Nottinghmam, our District Advancement Chair as well as filing multiple roles in Troop 4 over the years has decided to step down at the end of December. I'd like to extend a big Lakeview THANK YOU for his years of service to the youth in our District. I am truly appreciative of Jeff's experience, hard work and wise counsel over the years.

Jeff's successor is also from Troop 4. I'd like to introduce Adrianna Leyva as the new Advancement Chair for Lakeview District. Adrianna started in Troop 4 when her son Aaron became a Scout. Aaron went on to Eagle at age 16 and Adrianna went on to fill a number of roles in the Troop. Starting on the Troop Committee, attending a number of camp outs and then progressed on to Unit Advancement Chair. I am thrilled to have a Scouter with Adrianna's experience and background and know that she will be up to the task of filling Jeff's hiking boots. Contact her at: aldolphinblue@yahoo.com

Please join me in wishing Adrianna and Jeff success in their new endeavors!

Camporee 2018 Based on Star Wars Theme

Adult Leader Liason Required

Greetings Lakeview District Troops,

We are anticipating an exciting 2018 Camporee event at Camp Worth to be held on April 6-8th, 2018. With new Star Wars movies coming out in December 2017 and May 2018.

We’ll be hosting “Scout Wars” themed activities based on Scout input.

ATTENTION! As is always the case, the best events only come together with dedicated support so we need a scouter liaison to be provided from each troop as we enter the formal planning phase.

Please send your adult liaison’s name, email and phone number to simonlmclean@gmail.com by December 15th, so we can schedule our first meeting later this month.

Yours in Scouting,

Simon McLean, Assistant Scoutmaster, Troop 168, Cell (214) 490-0034

RE: FAMILY FRIENDLY POLICY DETAILS
Happy Holidays Lakeview District,

2017 was another great year for our Youth, our District and the Scouting movement. I'm sure you remember the BSA announcement in October that Cub Scouting would open up to girls and boys in the Fall of 2018 as part of the Family Scouting Program. Lots of good info on the change can be found at: https://www.scoutingnewsroom.org/family-scouting

Our own Longhorn Council will be an early adopter of the New Family Scouting Program and Lakeview District Cub Scout Packs will have the opportunity to participate. In order for your Pack to participate, Scouting will require the following of your Pack:

  • Have all Direct Contact Leaders (Cubmaster and Den Leaders) and the Committee Chairman trained before submitting your application.
  • Use the current Cub Scouting program and resources to achieve rank advancement by May 31, 2018.
  • Uphold the membership policies and follow the guidelines in the unit performance guide.
  • Provide data and statistics on the activities and experiences to help improve the formal rollout in the Fall and this information may also be used in marketing.
  • Once your Pack receives approval to participate from Longhorn Council, your COR then your Unit leader (or designee) will activate a BeAScout.org pin by March 15, 2018 and register all your girls via the online process.
  • Your Pack will need to register a minimum of 4 girls into your existing Pack in an all-girl den through the online application process.

The Pack application to be an early adopter of the Family Scouting Program can be found here: Family Scouting Program Application

Applications for acceptance into the Longhorn Council Family Scouting Program must be submitted to the Longhorn Council offices in Hurst by the COB, Monday, January 22nd, 2018. Please contact our District Executive, Tracy Carroll at Tracy.Carroll@Scouting.org or her office phone at 817-231-8563 if you need assistance with any questions.
