JOIN SCOUTING WEEK - 1998
Question: What's the Most Important Date for Every Cub Scout Leader?
JOIN SCOUTING NIGHT - 1998...because every boy needs the opportunity to become a Cub Scout!
The most important date for every Cub Scout leader is Join Scouting Night - 1998 (JSN98). JSN98 is our best opportunity to reach out and make a lasting, positive change in the life of a boy in your neighborhood. Working together, we can strengthen the most vibrant packs and give new life to struggling ones.
So plan for it now by attending the Join Scouting Night Orientation at the Colonial District Roundtable on Wednesday, August 12 from 7:30 - 9 p.m. at Aldersgate Methodist Church. Check your calendar. If you cannot make it, then attend the alternate orientation on September 1st at St. Mary's Lyceum, 313 Duke Street in Old Town Alexandria (parking available at the corner of Duke and Fairfax Streets).
Scouting in the Colonial District is very healthy. In January 1998, over 1,400 boys were registered as Cub Scouts. Our District goal is a 10% increase to be achieved by January 1999. Mark your calendar for August 12 or September 1 and for the week of September 14 - 18 this year to mark the most important night in the life of your pack - Join Scouting Night - 1998.

Scouting Doesn't Just Happen. People Like You Make It Happen!
EXPLORER POSTS AND VENTURE CREWS
Colonial District Scouters: If you have Scouts in your units who are at least 14 years of age, they are invited to join an Explorer Post or Venture Crew. It is important for older Scouts to accomplish their leadership responsibilities in their troops AND to have opportunities for advanced training in Exploring and Venturing programs. For this reason, a Scout may continue his registration in his Troop and register in a Post or Crew. Several opportunities are now available and your Scouts should be encouraged to take advantage of them. Just call or email the adult advisor at the number below and let them know of your interest.
