Goose Creek District April News

Posted on Apr 1 2014 - 9:29pm

Attached is the April 2014 Goose Creek District BSA newsletter.

Please pass the newsletter around to other members of your unit. We would like to expand the newsletter with more on what our units are doing, so if your pack/troop/crew has had a special trip, event, ceremony, or open house let us know about it by sending the information to GCProgram@verizon.net

NOTE: We would like to get a parent volunteer to work with our Troop Historian to write up a brief summary of an event we hold and then submit it for possible publication. 

IF you want to directly receive this newsletter, send an email to Communications@GooseCreekDistrict.org and ask to be added to the Boy Scout email group.
