Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of every month at St. John Lutheran Church (520 N. Holland Bellville, TX 77418 ) at 7:30 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
Cuboree and Rocket Day
October 28, 2017 | 7:30 am - 4:30 pm
Cuboree is an action-packed day for Cub Scouts. Scouts will enjoy outdoor games and activities in an outdoor camp setting, with an emphasis on shooting sports (activities which individual Packs cannot hold on their own). Cub Scouts and their families can camp the entire weekend with their pack.
Boys who join Cub Scouts this year will receive a rocket that they can design, build, and launch at cuboree. The event is being held at Camp Happy Hollow (2016 Happy Hollow Rd, Brenham, TX 77833). Distribute the promotional placemat/ activity sheet to Scouts to remind them about the event. The half-day flier can be attached to the rockets.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Sam Houston Area Council as a result of the annual popcorn sale. 70% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are three options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-n-sell. New for this year, units that sell over $12,000 will receive free home popcorn delivery. For more information, contact the district popcorn kernel, Jennifer Michalik.
