BGD Scouters,
Due to the National BSA meeting reception taking place downtown Atlanta on our regular monthly roundtable night on May 19, we are moving our meeting to Tuesday May 12. I hope you can make it.

But wait. There’s more.

District Advancement Chair Greg Thurlow is going to make a special presentation to Life Scouts and parents who want to learn what is needed to finish earning the Eagle rank. Please invite them all to the May 12 Roundtable.  Greg’s informative presentation will last from 7:45 until 8:30 that evening. Greg is going to outline the process and answer questions about finalizing the path to Eagle, particularly the paperwork and the service project.

Don’t miss it! Please let your Life Scouts and their folks know immediately. It will be a great chance to learn and ask questions from he who knows.

More information about May 12 roundtable to follow.

Yours in better Scouting in Gwinnett,
Sam Harris
ADC Boy Scout Roundtable
