Old Fashioned Summertime Picnic
Friday, August 17, 2018 | 5:00-7:30
All Scouts, volunteers and their families are invited to join us for an Old Fashioned Summertime Picnic! Invite friends who might be interested in joining Scouting. We’re closing out the summer with a picnic with our Arrowmoon District Scouting friends!
When is the last time you spent lying under majestic pecan trees with a gentle breeze cooling you off and the children in the distance laughing, running about, and having a grand ole time without the help of an electronic device? You won't want to miss this extraordinary opportunity!
The Star of the Republic Museum and Barrington Farm are located at Washington on the Brazos State Park. Fee. free to arrive a couple of hours before the picnic begins to visit one or both of the amazing venues on your own. There is a cost for both.
Because Washington on the Brazos is known as "the birthplace of Texas", district volunteers will be offering an opportunity for Scouts to work on either the Texas Award or Badge.

Arrowmoon District Roundtable
September 13, 2018
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (2815 Welsh Ave, College Station, Texas 77845) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of Roundtable is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts. Follow us on Facebook.

Annual Planning: A common element of strong units is they all have a good annual program planned a year in advance. The plan is then shared with all families in the form of an annual program calendar. Two other key elements of successful units are trained leaders and having the right leaders.

Rocket Day is a Cub Scout event that gives new Cub Scouts an introduction to Scouting and potential Cub Scouts an opportunity to join. Youth who join Cub Scouts will receive a rocket patch for joining, and if they join they will also receive a rocket that they can design, build, and launch at Rocket Day. All new Cub Scouts in the district, along with their families are invited to Rocket Day to launch rockets given to them for joining. Packs are encouraged to make the event a pack activity by inviting all Cub Scouts and their families to watch the rocket launches, see demonstrations by district Boy Scout troops, have a picnic lunch and even opt to see the Museum of the American GI. All Scouts and families must register at the registration table when entering the museum. Entry to the event is free. The event is being held at The Museum of the American GI
