Roundtable Just Keeps Getting Better
Your unit benefits when adult leaders are present at District Roundtables. Roundtable Commissioners Bruce Warpool (Cubs) and Lyle Russell (Boy Scouts) present interesting and helpful programs to equip unit leaders each second Thursday of the month. Hands-on activities, such as 3-D modeling of topo maps at a recent Roundtable, have instant application in your unit’s next meeting!
