Buckskin Council Courier
The Buckskin Council Courier is our quarterly newsletter, and is full of information for upcoming events at both the Council and District levels.
Dear Fellow Scouters,
Change can be stressful and challenging, but often improvement requires change. Please review
the article in this month’s Courier on the redistricting of the Buckskin Council.
The changing of our districts’boundaries will allow better utilization of our resources and better
opportunities to serve youth. It will also create shorter travel times for our service staff and align areas
that work well together.
The bottom line for redistricting is that we (the Buckskin Council) will be better able to provide service and support
to unit leaders. And that is what the Buckskin Council should be all about. Providing the best service and support to our
front line volunteer leaders is our top priority.
In the spirit of providing the best service and support, please drop me a note, send an email, or give me a call if you
see an area where we can do a better job. I sincerely want to provide you with the very best service. Also give me a shout if
we do something especially well. We will want to repeat that as often as possible.
Good Scouting 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.
