Join Us for Scouting for Food Kickoff at the January Roundtable

Posted on Jan 11 2013 - 2:54am


I am excited to announce that January's Roundtable will be the official Kick-off for the 2013 Scouting for Food Drive in the Button Gwinnett District!

Scouting for Food is the annual coordinated service project of the Atlanta Area Council.  Started in St. Louis as an Eagle Scout service project in 1985, Scouting for Food has grown to become one of the largest canned food drives in America. Scouting for Food makes a huge impact in our communities, and teaches our Scouts valuable life lesson on service and giving.

Please make sure your unit has a representative at this month's Roundtable to get signed-up and all of this year's information. Roundtable is Tuesday, January, 15th, 2013, at 7:30PM at Christ Church Episcopal (400 Holcomb Bridge Road, Norcross, GA 30071). 

From the New District Chair - Happy New Year!

Posted on Jan 11 2013 - 2:45am

Fellow Button Gwinnett Scouters and Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope all of you had a wonderful Holiday season with your friends and loved ones. 

During the December district business meeting, Mark Grams completed three years as District Chair and a need was created to fill the role. Thank you Mark for your three years of dedicated service to the district.

I have the honor to succeed Mark and serve you as the Button Gwinnett District Chair for 2013. 

In succeeding Mark as the District Chair, my job will be to work with our District Commissioner, Jim Gilpatrick, and our District Executive, George Snipes to support our units and ensure that our youth members get the best possible Scouting experience in a safe environment.

Program Chair's Corner: Something to be thankful for

Posted on Nov 16 2012 - 12:31am


Hey Button Gwinnett Scouters! I hope all of you are doing well. I'm on a flight home from suburban Washington DC, where I had some business meetings the past couple of days. It's been an extremely busy seven days for me.

Monday night consisted of a Troop Cook Off Competition, reminiscent of an Iron Chef episode on the Food Network! The patrols were given allspice as a secret ingredient by the SPL and their mission was to use the ingredient in a dish that would be tasted and judged by the scoutmasters.
