Holiday Greetings Scouters,
The twelfth point of the Scout Law is “a Scout is Reverent”, and fast approaching is that very special
time of year, the holiday season. With all of the hustle and bustle, the true meaning of the season
sometimes gets lost in the marketing and celebrations. Let’s try to remind our Scouts about the true
meaning and purpose of the season, so that they may fully appreciate this wonderful time of year.
This time of year also marks another important event. Unit rechartering is rapidly approaching, and
recharter packets should be available now or very soon. Please take advantage of internet rechartering. It is fast,
convenient, and improves accuracy. Instructions are in your recharter packet. Also please make sure all of your registered
adults have taken youth protection training in the past two years. This is a National BSA policy and the biggest
impediment to units rechartering on time.
If you plan to stop by the Scout Service Center to wish us Happy Holidays, please remember we have temporarily moved
to the City National Bank Branch Office in Kanawha City. City National Bank has been very generous in the support of
our temporary move and we want to thank them.
Happy Holidays to you and yours,
Jeffrey L. Purdy
Volunteers are the heart of scouting, and in the Buckskin Council we have a group who quietly serve you by making sure the newsletters and other key communications are prepared, labeled and mailed. We always look forward to seeing these volunteers in the council office, and we think it is important to let our leaders know who these folks are so you can thank them when you see them!
The person who leads the charge is Bonnie Starling!
The Courier March helpers were, Art Altman, Phil Gaarenstrom, Jack Robertson, Carleton Starr and Grace Tolbert.
The Newsletter is folded on the last Tuesday of each
month, between August and May, starting around 8:30 and ending around noon.
If you would like to join this great group of people, call the Scout Service Center at 304-340-3663 and let us know. We would greatly appreciate your help.
