Well hey there,
Christopher here, your new Scout Service Representative, here to tell you that WE ARE STILL HERE! Coming at you on Facebook, on YouTube, on Twitter, on LinkedIn, and on Instagram! We are taking Scouting to a whole other level! What’s it called? Scouting At Home! Your one stop shop ( well, with links to other social medias) to live programming, Merit Badge learning courses, and the latest news! If you haven’t had the chance to visit, click the link above or below to take you there!
We had the annual Mesquite Recognition Brunch planned for March 28th. Unfortunately, we did have to cancel the event due to the circumstances. But what is not cancelled is the recognition awards we want to present to our dedicated and esteemed volunteers. We want to make sure that our appreciation does not go unnoticed by the whole district. So, we will be planning on presenting those awards at our next scheduled open Roundtable. Stay tuned!
We also have Mesquite’s first Annual Pinewood Derby Race still scheduled for May 16th, 2020! This event is currently still on and what a great time and activity for the Scouts to do at home. There are some great YouTube videos that give great tips on designing a fast car. But make sure to have your parent’s permission when wanting to watch anything on YouTube and to handle any power tools needed. So, get your cars ready!
The Alamo Area Council will adjust their Outdoor Adventure schedule as the schools come back in session, but I don’t know about you, but once this season is done, I am going outside and may stay outside for a while! Make sure to look at the Council Calendar. We have AAC Day Camps and Bear Creek Summer Camps up and ready for you to sign up and go! A great way to start the summer!
Lastly, our office doors may be closed to the public, but the Alamo Area Council staff is still here to serve you! We aim to continue bringing quality programming, excellent service, and as always making sure that Scouting continues for your family. Make sure to visit our Scouting At Home site which gives access to our Facebook Live videos and our Zoom Merit Badge Learning courses. These are excited times for Scouting!
From a Friend,
Christopher Mendoza, Scout Service Representative
Mesquite District, Alamo Area Council
