School Night to Join Scouting

(SNTJS)

We need to be thinking about preparing for school rally nights this fall. Units need to select Marketing and Membership Chairperson to help with this year’s class of fall recruits. The Chippewa District Executive and Membership Chairman (Carl Chudzinski) will schedule appointments with the local school principal and submit the school flyer to the superintendant’s office for approval. Thank you in advance for your help.
