Thank you to all for your help and participation in making the Alamo Area Council’s first virtual roundtable in April so successful! This was a great way to communicate one Scouting message with all of our volunteer leaders, parents, and Scouting families. It keeps Scouting moving forward in this difficult period of time! It was a team effort and we appreciate everyone’s support.
“Baden-Powell said Scout Spirit is an attitude that Scouts around the world are supposed to show…Our virtual Roundtable showed us that a virus can’t stop that Scout Spirit! Scouting is alive and well, not just at home, but in our hearts. I was proud of the turnout and contributions everyone made during our April Roundtable,” said Lance Hirsch, Alamo Area Council Commissioner.
Remember, we are one Scouting family.
We had almost two hundred people participate in the General Session, sixty-five in the Cub Scout breakout session, ninety-nine in Scouts BSA, and twenty-one in the Venturing breakout session. That is a lot of Scouters learning about what is going on in the Alamo Area Council. And, we’re finally on the same page…or the same video conferencing screen, in this case. It is also the largest Zoom meeting I have ever seen since adjusting to our new normal!
Special thanks to Council Commissioner, Lance Hirsch; Council Roundtable Commissioner, Sean Basinger and Assistant Council Commissioner, John Haines for their leadership and assistance in making sure that this happened smoothly.
All Scouters from the Alamo Area Council’s Six Districts – Fiesta, Coyote, Roadrunner, Mesquite, River, Oaktree – and beyond are invited to attend the virtual May Council-Wide Roundtable on Thursday, May 7, 2020. Join us for program updates, fellowship, news, and training starting with a 30-minute general session then continuing with program breakouts for Scouts BSA, Cub Scouts, and Venturing.
