Thank you to those who responded on my question on our proposed Community
Those who wrote back talked of a combined schools recruiting night (or
I'm afraid in my original posting, I was not clear on the intentions of
our Community Campaign.
These units are talking about doing more than a recruiting night.
They're talking about a full-blown campaign week or month.
Throughout they'll invite boys to join & have a combined rally at the end
for all new & still potential scouts.
The idea, I think is to become very visible in the community, which is
the smallest of our 4,
but the most underserved percentage-wise. One of the packs has to draw
from 3 schools.
So, if you happen to think of or remember any neat visible events that
can be done, let me know.
(One we're discussing is to have all of the Scouts run & participate in a
Community Cleanup Day)
Good luck in your fall recruitment. The frenzie, er, excitement is just
