Eastern Skies News December 2016


Recharter and Journey to Excellence due for all units, Dec. 31st.  Due to the holidays and to give the Council time to review all of the Districts Recharters, it is recommended to turn in by Dec. 1st.  Make sure all adults take the Youth Protection Training online, before you turn in the Recharter, so your Recharter is not flagged.  Journey to Excellence:  Let me know what level you achieved, so it can go into the District Dinner's Achievement Book.  Also, your unit gets a ribbon to go on your unit flag.  Keep copies of both for your records.
