Aquila District Roundtable

Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at Bellaire United Methodist Church (4417 Bellaire Blvd., Bellaire, TX 77401) to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Donations of new and gently uniforms for all programs are being collected at Roundtable through December.

Webelos Woods Information
Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Sam Houston Area Council as a result of the annual popcorn sale. 70% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are three options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-n-sell. New for this year, units that sell over $12,000 will receive free home popcorn delivery. For more information, contact the district popcorn kernel, Jennifer Kelley.
