The Three Rivers District will be hosting Popcorn Training to get ready for the 2014 Popcorn season.
The training will be held on Saturday, July 12, 2014, from 10:30am – 12:00pm at the South Norfolk Memorial Library. The library is at 801 Poindexter St, Chesapeake, VA 23324.
The Library is easy to access from 464. Take the Poindexter exit away (opposite) from the Jordan Bridge. Be careful the right lane is a turn only lane and you are going straight. The Library is in the rear of the building at the corner of Bainbridge Blvd. and Poindexter, to your left when you exit from 464.
Space is limited to 40 people, so sign up quickly!
Please reserve your space at ERiverPopcorn@aol.com.
Now is the best time of year to gather all of your troop’s youth leaders and registered adults to create your annual program plan for the next 12 months. There are some helpful new tools and checklists to use from BSA. Please visit http://www.scouting.org/
One of the 3 key elements of all successful, strong, and quality troops (and an indicator of a potentially successful year) is the troop’s annual program plan and planning conference according to a research project done by the Eli Lilly organization. Having and SHARING a good annual troop program -planned a year in advance – with all families in the form of a calendar can result in retaining and attracting more families.
Just as an aside, the another key element of successful troops identified in that study is TRAINED adults!
If you have questions about creating your troop’s annual plan, please contact your unit commissioner. If you are not sure who your unit commissioner is, you can find the full listing here.
