Welcome New Committee Member
Join me in welcoming our newest committee member. John Haley joins the district as the Religious Emblem Coordinator.

Beaver Day
Beaver was held at Parish Reservation April 25 and again on May16 as part of the District Spring Camporee. So many projects were done to help the camp that we can’t list them all here. We are so fortunate to live close enough to Camp Tubb that we can be there in 30 minutes and it is almost always available to us. Get out there with your unit and camp!

District Pinewood Derby
The annual District Pinewood Derby was held in March at the Three Star Mall in McMinnville. Troop 309 once again hosted and did a great job.

Friends of Scouting Success
2015 has been a great year for Friends of Scouting in the Black Fox District. Through the efforts of a great team of volunteers led by Tim McGill, we reached or overall district goal before March ended. Thank you all for your support!
