|Popcorn Take Order Distribution
With the close of the 2017 Show-and-Sell popcorn year we hope that all units had a successful run and everyone made a lot
of money. The Indian Springs popcorn distribution will be held Saturday, November 11 at the Printpack warehouse in Villa
Rica. All monies should be turned in to Council no later than December 7. And don't forget to enter any prizes earned by
your Scouts, including Top Sellers by December 7.
Changes in Advancement
We've all heard about changes in the advancement of our Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Maybe you've been using it since the
year began but, just in case you are still curious about who does what, our District Advancement Chair, Scott Bates, has
provided information on these changes. Scouts, leaders and parents can download the updated "Guide to Advancement" by
following this link.
Also, there are modifications to the earning of Eagle Palms. The new process can be found here. If leaders have any questions
about Palms or any advancement, please contact Scott directly.
