Greg thought it might be best to cancel the meetings for tomorrow. Both Roundtable and District Committee meeting are canceled.
Also, a reminder to the District Committee Members that the District Charter is due. Please pay on District Level and multiple in the units.
The city of Mesquite has asked us to staff Christmas in the Park again this year. We will be manning the Marshmallow roasting booth. We tend the fire, and hand out sticks. Volunteers are needed for Friday, December 6th and Saturday, Dec 7th. If you or your unit would like to volunteer for this, please email Bill Hayden by clicking here. Please consider helping with this. The city Parks and Rec department helps our district out in so many ways with Twilight Camp, Cub Fun day, etc.
The Boy Scouts of America has announced that effective January 1, 2014 that the national fee to be a member of the BSA will be $24. We wanted to share this with you as soon as possible so that you can begin preparing for the recharter process. This fee equals only $2 per month. This does include units with a December 31, 2013, expiration date. For those who join after the beginning of the year, the fee will be prorated at $2 per month.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your District Executive. Thank you for your service to the young people of our area. We are truly grateful.

News from the OA Uktena Chapter
Dameron Mason, Cooper Blount, and Tyler Atwood completed their Vigil this weekend. Please join me and our Chiefs in congratulating these fine boys on a job well done.
The Uktena Chapter has had a great year! We are currently finishing work on Honor Chapter and our Brotherhood Conversion Award. We look forward to continuing this tradition of excellence, service, and leadership in the coming years.
We have been very active helping out with many district events. We did the TFC program this summer at Twilight Camp. We had many Arrowmen staff summer camps. We are also running Webelos Woods this year for the district. We plan to have a great program for our new upcoming scouts so that they will see what boy scouts are like. We are working to improve our ceremony regalia and team.
We did our chapter elections and want to congratulate the new boys who will run our chapter for the next year:
