Roundtable is a meeting on the third Thursday of every month for Scout leaders and anybody wishing to learn more about Scouting and upcoming events. We highly encourage all Scouting leaders to come. There are breakouts sessions for each level of scouting and a general session for all to attend. The premise is to learn from other scouting leaders that have already been or are going through the program and ask the questions you may have. It is a great opportunity to find out what events are going on in the Council and District for units and their families.
