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.

You can read the November edition here.

Dear Scouters,


The new H. Bernard Wehrle Sr. Scout Leadership Service Center has a very unique quality that you should
be aware of and take advantage of! We have a program activity room that can accommodate 40 or more
Scouts and leaders in sleeping bags. The program activity room also has a drop down screen and projector. The Program activity
area has a food prep area with microwave ovens, warming bins, commercial grade refrigerator, and ice machine. We have rest
rooms with showers. We have a campfire ring outside along the banks of the Kanawha River. There will be camping available on
the river as soon as the grass grows a little more.

Scout units spending the day or weekend will get a pin code to access the program activity area even though the Service
Center is closed.

We are a short hike from the State Capitol complex, including the Culture Center and Museum. We have the Craik-
Patton House right next door. Hopefully by the time you read this, we will have a schedule worked out for several merit badges
that can be earned there. We are in the process of putting together STEM kits so your Scouts can arrange to have a STEM program
while using the program activity room.

Reservation can be made by contacting the Service Center at 304-340-3663. The cost for Scouts and leaders is a minimal
charge of $2 a person for a day, or $3 a person for the weekend. Additional cost may be charged if you use expendable supplies
for the STEM program.

If you would like to join our Service Center Program Committee to help plan future available activities, contact Tyler
Grimmett at 304-340-3663.

Good Scouting to You and Yours,

Jeffrey L. Purdy
Scout Executive

Newsletter Volunteers

     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.
