Your Scatacook Program Team is literally where the fun starts! We meet at the District Committee Meeting the first Monday of every month at 7:30 PM at St. Thomas Aquinas in Bethel. Join us with some great ideas, enthusiasm, or even just some baked goods ;-)

In theory, all of the above program and training dates should be available for registration on the new and improved website. Please let us know if not and we will see about getting this corrected.

We have the following spots on the District team open (and a couple more), who is the next Leader you know that wants to be part of helping create the fun? 

Cub Activities Enthusiast - help us plan and implement more activities for the Cubs! We have some big ideas, we need the right person to create a team and move this forward!
STEM Activities Enthusiast - help bring NOVA/STEM opportunities to our units! No knowledge of STEM required, this is more of a promoter/coordinator role.
FOS Enthusiasts - Get to meet all of the units in the Council, often at their most fun events!
Popcorn Coordinator - a coordinating job for someone who is passionate about organizing and coordinating. No sales required!
 
See you Wednesday!
 
Your Scatacook Team
