Celebrating Cherokee Outstanding Leadership
Well, it goes without saying that Cherokee has more than its fair share of incredible volunteer leaders, and we want to say thank you to each of you. But we did recognize two folks in particular for service beyond the expected and presented them with the Long Rifle Award. Kelly Gettings of Troop 413 has been the OA chapter advisor, serves on District Committee, and is incredibly active both with the troop and district. We thank you Kelly for all you do to make Scouting great! Glenn Rowlett was also awarded the Long Rifle posthumously through his sons Colby and Garrett. Glenn was an incredibly hard working volunteer at district camporees, events, and was heavily involved with his pack and troop both. Sadly, we lost Glenn last year, and he will be sorely missed by all of us, but his impact on the district and council Scouting programs will live on for many years. Congratulations to both of these Long Rifle recipients, and to all of our leaders.
Spring Camping Plan ???
If you are not sure what you want to do this April, let me suggest…camping!!! Both Cubs and Boy Scouts have district events this time, and we encourage all of you to come be a part. The cubs will be camping at Stahlman in Boxwell the weekend of April 26-28, with Troop 133 playing host for our packs. And the Boy Scouts will have their spring camporee at Craig in Boxwell, courtesy of several district leaders, the director of which is our very own Dave Lannom. You want to be there!!! The new Search and Rescue merit badge is the focus and promises to be great fun and adventure.
Hello's and Goodbye's
As of March 1, Cherokee District has a brand new District Executive (DE). Please give a hearty welcome and show your support for Craig Carpenter! Craig is an Eagle Scout, has worked on camp staff for 12 years, and is very familiar with Scouting here in Middle TN Council, having grown up in Williamson County. He is eager to meet with you and begin serving the greater Cherokee district, so help make him feel welcome. As for me, I am still living in Hendersonville and will continue to do my Scouting in Cherokee. As the Central Area Field Director, I might not get to see you as often as I had, but know this…Cherokee Scouting rocks and so do each of you, my friends!!!
