State of the District from the K3
COMMISSIONERS - COMMISSIONERS - COMMISSIONERS
Every unit should have a trained Unit Commissioner and as of now we have some units who need one, or we have Unit Commissioners who have several units and we’d like to spread the units around to make the duties manageable.
- Who is the perfect candidate? A leader or parent that is crossing over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.
- What does a unit commissioner do? A commissioner plays several roles, including friend, representative, unit "doctor," teacher, and counselor. A Unit Commissioner is simply a “Friend of the Unit” - one who is there to help the units follow the Scouting standards, helping the units achieve the highest possible JTE ranking, and basically provide that connection between unit and district. Read more about Commissioners Services on Scouting.org http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Commissioners/orientation.aspx
- We’re looking for anyone to help out such as scouting parents, Webelos parents with scouts crossing over and extra time on their hands, or leaders who have a free evening they can spare to attend a unit meeting. Anyone who wants to help is welcome to join one of the most rewarding scouting positions. This is the one scouting position that is truly one hour a week. That one hour can benefit every scout in the unit immensely. If you are interested, please contact Evan Reif to get more details or to ask questions. Evan Reif 561.906.2192

HELP NEEDED FROM OUR SCOUTING FAMILY
Troop 125 along with Pack 125 have set up a donation site for people to help out with Robin Corradino's medical bills. Robin who has been that go to person we all can depend on is battling stage 4 cancer and we would like you to pass this link on to the district at large.

I would like anyone who can, now help one of our scouters who has helped so many in the past years in this difficult time.
CLICK LINK TO MAKE A DONATION:
We are raising funds to help our friend Robin Corradino as she and her family battle stage four cancer that has attacked her brain and lungs. The “We’” in this case is her family and a multitude of friends who have had the pleasure to know her through her countless hours of volunteer involvement in so many activities, be they girls basketball leagues in Long Island, New York or through her extensive activities with the Cub and Boy Scouts in Southeast Florida. Not content with just those efforts, Robin has been a fixture in the volunteer ranks in her children’s schools for many years.
