Recruit! Recruit! Recruit!    

White River Trails experienced mixed results the first go around of Join Scouts Night. Some units recruited a good number of new youth, while other units, had a fair to low turnout. Unfortunately, some of the low turnout could be attributed to the decreasing access to some schools in the district. That means we get to come up with NEW ways of getting the information to the youth and their families in the community. So, if you have any ideas how we can improve marketing in the schools in your community, let me know!        

2ND JSNs are starting next week (September 6th). Units that experienced a very low turnout during the first JSN, will be strongly encouraged to setup another night for recruitment. Fliers, yard signs, and 3x5 banners are readily available for advertising purposes.     


Nearly 50 attendees made up of Scouts, Scouters, families, and friends braved the thunderstorms that visited us early afternoon at West Boggs Lake. Enjoyed by all was excellent food, fun, and fellowship. In addition to all this,. there were six Scouters that completed their Youth Protection Training, which, was facilitated by our own District Training Chair, Dan Colglazier!

Hope to see you at next year's bigger and better WRT Family Kickoff!!!
