Roundtable Staff Objectives

Roundtables are a form of commissioner service and supplemental training for volunteers at all levels. The objective of roundtables 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. The roundtable commissioner and staff demonstrate elements of a model meeting that leaders may use as a pattern for their own meetings. The roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Webelos and Boy Scouts.

Meeting Times:

Monthly from September to May

The First Thursday night of the month

7 PM - 8 PM

Saint Luke’s United Methodist Church, Danville VA

Scouts in Dan River honor the Veterans Graves in Danville








Our next generation prepares to honor past generations...over 2,000 veterans were remembered with a flag placed on each grave. Actually kind of sad they are so seldom thought of, sadder still the number than are inscribed "unknown". Nearly 3/4 of the confederate graves in this cemetery are from the north, the least we can do is briefly stand in as their family who may not even know they are here.

Important Changes to the Boy Scouts of America’s Youth Protection Training Policies

Youth safety is the No. 1 concern of the BSA.   To increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist  today in Scouting, the Boy Scouts of America is implementing several important changes to further enhance its Youth Protection policies:

 

Effective June 1, 2010:

·         Youth Protection Training is required for all registered volunteers.     

·         New leaders are required to take Youth Protection Training before they submit their application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.

·         Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.

 

 To ensure these policies are fully implemented, please take the following steps:

·         If you have not taken Youth Protection Training within the past two years, please log on to MyScouting and take the training. Be sure to have your member ID number. The number can be found on your Boy Scouts of America membership card. 

·         If you do not know your member ID number, contact your unit leader or committee chairman. Your council can also assist you.

·         If you have taken Youth Protection Training online but did not input your member ID number, please log back on to the Training section of MyScouting and input your member ID so the training will be linked with your records.

·         If you have taken Youth Protection Training within the past two years but did not take the course online, log on to MyScouting to ensure your records are up to date, or contact your council and have them verify that your Youth Protection Training records are accurate.

·         Finally, please share these important changes with other Scouters.

Youth Protection Training is available online at http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx.

To find out more about the Youth Protection policies of the Boy Scouts of America and how to help Scouting keep your family safe, see the information available in any of the Cub Scouting or Boy Scouting handbooks, or go to http://www.scouting.org/Training/YouthProtection.aspx.

Thank you for your commitment to our nation's young people and to Scouting.

Sincerely,

James Terry

Assistant Chief Scout Executive

Announcement

Each year, for the past many years, the Boy Scouts have helped set flags by the grave markers at the Lee St Veterans Cemetery in Danville for Memorial Day. This has always been an honorable service project for those that have attended, and I'd like to invite all of you to participate. The flag placing project starts at 8:00 AM Saturday May 29th. All scouts, scouters, and citizens may participate. We ask that scouts dress in class A uniforms. The event usually only lasts an hour or so. Many hands make quick work.
 
The cemetery is located ½ mile south of Main St and east of Jefferson, on Lee St.
Park on Lee St by the cemetery office.
 
The Memorial Day service sponsored by the American Legion takes place Monday Memorial Day at 2:30 PM. All branches of the armed services are represented and it is a moving ceremony. All citizens are invited to attend.
