Good day Foothills District Unit Leaders!

Summer activities are coming to a close as we transition to a new School year. Please join the Roundtable Staff this Thursday, August 5 and Holy Family Catholic Church starting with Fellowship at 7PM. We would love to hear about all the exciting things everyone has been doing. Educational material will have a heavy focus on the Fall Recruiting season.

Here is a copy of the agenda for review. We ask that EACH UNIT have at least one representative attend Roundtable to bring information back to the Unit Leadership. As a reminder, Roundtable attendance is one of the District Honor Roll (Chicken Pin) requirements to earn this award.

Thank you and we look forward to visiting with you on Thursday!
