Cub Scout Roundtable
WHAT IS ROUNDTABLE?
Roundtable is a monthly district service and supplemental training for volunteers at the unit level. The objectives of roundtables are to provide leaders with program ideas; information on policy and events; and training opportunities. It is a forum for sharing experiences and enjoying fun and fellowship with other Scout leaders. The roundtable experience will inspire, motivate, and enable unit leaders to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Roundtable meets the second Wednesday of each month at Good Shepard Lutheran Church, 1310 Shepard Drive, Naperville, IL 60565. Refer to the calendar for upcoming dates!
As an incentive to attend Roundtable, we have begun passing out totems. What is a totem? By definition, a totem is a natural object believed by a particular society to have spiritual significance and adopted by it as an emblem. For us, it it a symbol of participation in Roundtable and commitment to Scouts. So far, we have passed out leather cords and Indian Prairie symbols for August, footballs in September, bats in October, November was turkey feathers and Cubs beads, December was jingle bells, January had silver beads. More fun totems will be passed out to signify attendance and membership If you have any suggestions, please contact Laura R..
