New Member of Our District Committee

We also have a new member of our district committee who has offered to put on a breakout available to both Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA leaders on how to successfully organize a Family Scouting unit, whether it’s getting a new girl troop organized or new girls’ dens organized in a pack. His name is Andy Cater and he is a committee member for Pack 700 as well as a Scoutmaster for girls Troop 911. He was instrumental in making Pack 700 the first in the district to welcome girls in Cub Scouts last year, as well as spearheading the formation of El Dorado District’s very first girls’ troop in February of this year.
