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

10-10-2010 Danville Area’s Third CROP Hunger Walk

Hunger and poverty are rampant in our world, and something can and must be done about them. Our local CROP Hunger Walk is a great place to start. For a few miles, friends and neighbors will be coming together to end hunger, One Step at a Time. 

On Sunday, October 10th at 3.p.m. Danville's 3rd CROP Hunger Walk will be held to show our love and active concern for neighbors in need. By our sponsored walking we'll be raising funds to change the world in real & measurable ways -- digging wells that will bring clean water to cities; providing seeds & tools so people can grow their own food; helping communities & families rebuild after disasters like Hurricane Katrina : with CROP walks we ARE making a difference. Offering both a 1K & a 5K we'll start and end at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church where we will offer water & snacks, live entertainment and an opportunity to shop at a SERRV Sale (fair trade gift goods). Supporting our local God's Storehouse, we hope you'll step up or sponsor, but join in the effort. 

Our KICK-OFF party will be held at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church on Thursday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. where you will be able to come and collect your materials. 
For more information email us at or search for "Danville Area CROP Walk" on Facebook.

Our Charge

Paul the Apostle made this charge to a young man that he had taken under his wing: Love others, keep a clean mind and live by faith. He was giving this young man three principle that he could use to guide his life and our scouts can use these same principles. Love others by helping others at all times, being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, and brave. He can keep a clean mind by being clean in what he reads, clean in what he listens to and always being mentally awake to the dangers in this world around him. He can live by faith by being reverent and in his duty to God and living by the principles laid down in his word. Charge your scouts to do these things, but remember, your examples is the best teacher.
