Family Friends of Scouting
Great news!! With the help of Nominating Chair David Prior we have a new Family Friends of Scouting Chair. Here is a brief biography on Family FOS chair Linda Morgan. She was born and raised in St. Petersburg, USF graduate, Coldwell Banker Realtor, married to a wonderful man and mother to an amazing Eagle Scout. Her son was very blessed to have the support of all the deeply devoted adults that are a part of Boy Scout Troop 236. “Being involved with Scouting at the troop level was both a learning experience and an opportunity to be part of one of the most important journeys my son will travel. It is an honor to have the opportunity to give back, to our kids and the Scouts.” Skyway District is currently looking for dedicated and motivated volunteers for FOS presentations. If you enjoy sharing ideas and not afraid of a crowd we need you!!! For more information contact Linda Morgan at 727-251-0494 or email her at Linda.Morgan@floridamoves.com. Thank you again Mrs. Morgan for stepping up to the plate!

Units, we need your participation in the 2015 Family FOS campaign! Please don’t just focus on your unit’s financial needs, the district also needs you!!! Family Friends of Scouting is how we give our leaders and parents the opportunity to contribute to help offset the expense of providing Scouting the youth in our area. Family Friends of Scouting is our annual fundraising effort at the unit level. Unit leaders, please call or email us with the dates of your Pack, Blue and Gold, Pinewood Derbies, Court of Honor, Troop and Venturing meetings. Preferred presentation dates are January - March 2015. With a quick 10 minutes of your meeting time, we will explain to your unit what giving to Scouting is all about. Planning for it ahead of time will give us the opportunity to better serve you and the earlier the presentation, the more time parents have to pay off their pledges. Please contact Linda Morgan or Candice Nyarkoh to schedule your units presentation today!

Training
The youth we serve deserve trained leaders. The District goal is to have all registered leaders fully trained in their positions and to earned the Gold status JTE award of trained leader. In case you don’t know, most training is available online at www.wcfcbsa.org. For more training inquiries contact Training Chair Gib Bradbury at 727-204-4833 or gibbrad@bradtech.us.

Roundtable
January Roundtable has been rescheduled for January 8th due to the holidays. Roundtable occurs on the first Thursday of each month at 7:00PM unless otherwise noted. The meeting is at Clearview United Methodist Church, 4515 38th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, Florida 33713. Contact Candice Nyarkoh for more details.

Membership
Mind shift - no more concentrating on “Fall Recruiting” recruiting is now year round. All the other programs start in the spring so we have to change our ways. The youth of our communities need Scouting. As you all know some of our old recruiting efforts yielded very few members. We are currently contacting units so we can formulate better strategies for recruiting. So let’s get to work now! Whatever help you need don’t hesitant to contact Todd Kennedy at sapper@juno.com or Candice Nyarkoh. There are many customizable resources available free of charge to your unit and all you need to do is ask for them!
