Hello to everyone in Edelweiss District,
If you have not already heard about our District Roundtable then you'll be pleased to know that your Disrict Key 3 have been working to bring more communication to you the volunteers in the district!
Our current plan is to offer a monthly GoToMeeting based gathering of district scouters on every third Wednesday of the month. It is difficult to pick an evening that does not conflict with someone's schedule. With that in mind, if your unit has a committee meeting or troop meeting etc. that conflicts with the present schedule for our District roundtable, this would be an excellent opportunity to enlist the help of a family member in your unit that currently does not have an active role elsewhere. Many parents on the sidelines of scouting just need to be asked for a specific job and when reasonable, they usually say "yes".
Our first effort on this new endeavor was last night. Headed by Chris Knutson our district chair, we began an hour long open discussion that produced a fantastic list of ideas for future Roundtable topics. Kathy Foote, the Stuttgart Roundtable Commissioner, has graciously accepted the role as our interim District Roundtable Commissioner. She handled the bulk of our roundtable last night and helped produce a working plan for a year's worth of Roundtable discussions! We had a turnout well enough to make it a worthwhile discussion. Our main focus was explaining the concept of roundtable and getting input about what scouters would look for and want from our roundtable.
So, if no one from your unit was a part of the meeting then ask around in your unit for next month!
We will be offering a poll to see what night will work best for everyone involved, watch for that on the Edelweiss facebook page!
