District Consolidation Announcement - Download Town Hall Meetng Presentation

The Hoosier Trails Council, BSA would like to share plans to consolidate the Hoosier Hills and Lenni Lenape Districts into a newly formed service area.

"As a former chair of the Nominating Committee and as the current Finance Chair for the Hoosier Hills District, I concur that we need to make a significant, structural change.  We have serious leadership challenges in the current district configuration, and more importantly, I look forward to re-imagined and expanded district programming.” – Lake Lambert

“As the Council Commissioner and former Lenni Lenape District Chair, I support the recommendation for the district restructuring.  This will strengthen our ability to address the challenges that we face and will ultimately enable us to better serve the youth in the eastern part of the Council.   While change can be difficult,  I am confident that leaders in the new district will manage this with the Scouts’ best interests in mind.”  – Mark Wilson

Enter to win $100 Scout Shop Gift Card by suggesting the new district's name.
