White River Trails District
Proudly serving the youth and families of Greene, Daviess, Lawrence, Martin, and Orange Counties.
The White River Trails District (WRT) celebrated the hard work of all its volunteers for 2017, by holding the District Recognition Dinner at the Lawrence County Museum of History. During the evening, there were particular volunteers recognized for their extraordinary efforts in Scouting. Congratulations goes out to Tony Beckett and Mark Bredehoft, who both received the District Award of Merit, while, while Amy Force (Spark Plug Award) and Kristen Bell (Unsung Hero) were honored with awards, as well. We also celebrated units that earned the "Platinum " level (Packs 332, 444, 447 and Troops 332 and 484). We also had the opportunity to hear how the Council is doing and the awesome opportunities that lay ahead as Glen Steenberger (Scout Executive) and Mark Wilson (Council Commissioner) spoke during the Fireside Chat. Also speaking was Kevin Trojan, who, filled us in on this year's summer camp at Maumee.
A HUGE "thank you" goes out to all the volunteers in the district. WRT earned a very strong bronze rating (just missing silver) for the year. We are making WRT great!
White River Trails Thanks Albert Cross and Troop 343 for an awesome Winter Event!
White River Trails District enjoyed a memorable weekend at Indian Creek Baptist Church Camp learning all about good communication and get a good start on earning the Communications Merit Badge. The weather was all over the place as only Indiana can provide but Troop 348 made it the entire weekend with smiles on faces! Looking forward to the next big adventure at the Spring Camporee on April 27-29 at Spring Mill State Park. See you there!
Friends of Scouting 2018 Kickoff January 29, 2018!!!
Tonight kicks off the start of the 2018 Friends of Scouting Campaign! Friends of Scouting is the biggest fundraiser the Council has to raise support for programming, camperships, and maintenance and improvements to our properties.
One way that the district raises support is to have every unit schedule a Scouting event that will draw as many people as possible to hear of the value and benefits of Scouting, giving them an opportunity to give their support and become a Friends of Scouting supporter.
Please contact Rod Kates to schedule your unit's Friends of Scouting Presentation, today! Don't wait too long, because spots are filling up fast!
