ROUNDTABLE

Roundtables are a chance for Unit leaders throughout our district to come together to receive training, get updated on district and council news and enjoy the fellowship of one another. Lakes District Roundtables are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at The First Baptist Church in Whiteville.

 

District Committee:

The Lakes District Committee meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00pm at The First Baptist Church in Whiteville. This meeting is a chance for community and Scout leaders to get together once a month to grow and develop a vision for the district. This group of leaders works together to grow and strengthen Scouting in Columbus and Bladen Counties.

 

Successful Eagle Advancement!
The fact that a boy is an Eagle Scout has always carried with it a special significance, not only in Scouting but also as he enters higher education, business or industry, and community service. The award is a performance-based achievement whose standards have been well-maintained over the years. Not every boy who joins a Boy Scout troop earns the Eagle Scout rank; only about 5 percent of all Boy Scouts do so. This represents more than 1.7 million Boy Scouts who have earned the rank since 1912. Nevertheless, the goals of Scouting—citizenship training, character development, and personal fitness—remain important for all Scouts, whether or not they attain the Eagle Scout rank.
