Silver Beaver Nominations

The Silver Beaver Award is a very prestigious honor for a Scouter to receive. This a council award that is selected from submitted nominations annually by a specific deadline. The deadline this year is May 23, 2018. No late entrees will be accepted. The form is presently located on the Sweetwater website – district forms and flyers. This award brings recognition to adult volunteers for service to Scouting and the community. In our district we have been blessed to have several individuals so honored. You will find their names on the District Honor Roll page on the Sweetwater website. Please identify and help nominate one or more of those in our district who are deserving of this outstanding distinction. I am available to help anybody in our district with questions.

Thanks & Yours in Scouting
Ranny Burts

The Sweetwater District Roundtable. Did you know that we meet the 2nd Thursday of every month (except for June and July) at Snellville United Methodist Church beginning at 7 PM for approximately 1 hour. This is a great opportunity to pick up additional training, share with other leaders in the district, learn about any changes in program, advancement, service opportunities, pick up new flyers, and other great ideas, etc. Who knew that one hour a month could be so valuable a resource to you? Are you taking advantage of this resource? Have you told others in your Unit about this opportunity? If not, let's not waste any more time. Put August 11th on your calendar and start the school year off to a great start. Can't wait to see you there!
