Dear Scouters,

I hope this finds you all in good health and spirits!

For those that do not know, my name is Mike Jurkowski and I am the Dan Beard District Chairman. I am in my second year as the Chairman. One of my goals this year is to share and communicate District information with the unit leaders. I feel this will have two purposes. First, and most importantly, to give you the information you will need to continue to run and improve the quality program that you currently offer to your Scouts. Secondly, your knowledge and hopefully participation in District events will strengthen the District, which can then provide more support to the units.

From Friday, October 6th through Sunday, October 8th
