Great Cove District

Commissioner Corner

Another busy month has come and gone, as a reminder JTE work sheets must be turned into the Council Scout Service Center by the last week in December. “It’s beginning to look a lot like re-charter time,” so please start reviewing the needs for your units. Also please make sure to redo your youth protection during the month of November. We are still looking for Unit Commissioners, if anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me at Email or 717-331-6770. I hope all have a great Thanksgiving. Once again THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO FOR SCOUTING!

Yours in Scouting
Ian Willock
Great Cove District Commissioner
