Events

All scouting events require each and every attendee to turn in a completed COVID-19 PreEvent Checklist until otherwise posted. Click the bolded forms, print, fill out completely, and turn in the day of the event at check-in. Forms will be kept on file at Council Service Center until a specified period of time before being properly destroyed. ADULTS ALSO NEED WAIVERS TO ATTEND.


District Roundtable

Each month Five Rivers and Baldwin districts hold a monthly session, held the first Thursday of each month. Currently Five Rivers is held virtually via Zoom, Baldwin is held at St.Patrick's Parish Center. An email reminder goes out the week before and hour before the session.

What is Roundtable? Roundtables provide unit service that will assist unit leaders in preparing their youth to live the values of the Scout Oath and Law. They support unit leaders through delivering effective program ideas, relationship development, and timely communication.
Roundtables also provide an opportunity for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other leaders.

Who should attend Roundtable? All unit leaders, unit committee members, chartered organization representatives, commissioners, even registered parents should attend Roundtable, but in the busy world today, it is understood that with everyone’s full schedules that all leaders might not be able to attend EVERY monthly Roundtable. But it is almost ALWAYS possible that at least one adult from each unit is available to attend the monthly Roundtable.
