Orion District Roundtable
December 5, 2019 | 7:00 pm
Orion District serves Scouting units within the boundaries of Tomball ISD and Magnolia ISD. Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the first Thursday of the month at Church of Good Shepherd (715 Carrell St, Tomball, TX 77375) at 7:00 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.

Make plans to attend the Orion District pushmobile! Build or borrow a pushmobile and show how Cub Scout teamwork makes it all run! Pushmobile is a Cub Scout powered go-cart. Cub Scout dens make their own pushmobile. Cub Scouts work together as a team to push their pushmobile through the course to the finish line at this annual district event. The event is being held at Lone Star College - Tomball (30555 Tomball Pkwy., Tomball, TX 77375).
Teams are formed by Scout rank (kindergarten - 5th grade), typically organized by dens. Teams need to be a minimum of four Scouts. The ideal team size is eight Scouts. Teams with less than eight Scouts may add Scouts from other ranks (as long as they are a lower grade) or packs. Every Scout will receive a patch. Registration is $50 per team (pushmobile). Late registration is $60 per team beginning 12/11/2019. There is no onsite registration.

Friends of Scouting Presentation
FOS presentation date due by December 5, 2019
Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for families, friends, alumni, businesses and community organizations to support Scouting. The registration fee goes directly to the national office of the Boy Scouts of America. If a Scout unit collects dues, that money stays with the unit to help pay for supplies, advancements and other activities. None of that money helps the Sam Houston Area Council. In order to keep Scouting affordable for all youth, the council runs an annual Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign.
Friends of Scouting helps:
- Recruit and train youth and leaders
- Provide assistance to those in need
- Keep camps and activities affordable
- Enhance programming and facilities
- Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders
Friends of Scouting contributions provide approximately 24 percent of the support the council receives each year. The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect and life-long values.
Unit Leaders: Each unit is requested to hold a FOS presentation at your unit’s biggest gathering (typically the blue and gold banquet or a troop court of honor) during the months of February through May. The presentation, which takes approximately seven minutes to conduct, informs parents and leaders of all council services, its financial needs and extends an opportunity to help fulfill the need. Please sign up for a presentation.
