This is a letter from the Vulcan District Executive Director Micheal Wells. Pack 95 is in the Vulcan District and there are a lot of events and training opportunities you might not know about. Michael tells you how you can receive information from the district.
Scouts, Scouters, Scouting Families,
Vulcan District and the Greater Alabama Council has a lot of events, activities, and opportunities going on, in which our units and the youth can participate. Also, we have some very active neighboring Districts, which offer even more opportunities. Unfortunately, we sometimes have very limited participation, and a lot of people saying they did not know about it.
WHERE TO FIND THE INFORMATION OF WHAT IS GOING ON:
- Vulcan District Website. You can also get to the District Website by going to the Greater Alabama Council website at www.1bsa.org, and in the upper right hand corner it says “Find a District”, with a dropdown box where you can select Vulcan.
- The Vulcan District Monthly Newsletter. If you do not receive this currently, go to the District Website, scroll down to the bottom of the Home Page, and email us with a request to be added to the mailing list.
- The Digital Eagle. This is the Council’s weekly electronic newsletter. If you do not receive this, go to the Council website, scroll to the bottom of the Home Page, and Sign up.
- This can be overwhelming with information, so here are some tips on how to get the most information. Look at the first sections (What’s New, General Information, Training, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing/Exploring). Then go to Vulcan, you can jump to it by selecting Vulcan in the District News section following Venturing and Exploring.
Please take advantage of these resources, and if you have other ideas on opportunities to improve effective communication, feel free to submit it to me, or email the district at vulcandistrictAL@gmail.com.
Yours in Scouting,
Michael T. Wells
Senior District Executive
