Round Table location 

Each month, the District convenes a Roundtable for Cub Scout Den and Pack leaders, and a Roundtable for Boy Scout Troop leaders and Venturing Advisors. Roundtables are locally-focused opportunities for in-service training, program ideas, news about the Council and District, and information-sharing With other involved Scouters. Roundtables are held the first Thursday of the month (off for the Summer) at 7:30 p.m. The location is: 
Church ofJesus Christ 
of Latter Day Saints 
4700 Edinbrook Terrace 
Brooklyn Park, MN 55443 

Does your unit charge dues? 

Do you have to pay for camping? 
If you said yes to either of those questions, you need to talk to Jane Hansen. Jane is Northern Light's District Popcorn Chair and this fall she wants to make sure that your Scout earns his way to an entire year of Scouting. 
Several families and a few units already fund their entire year of Scouting with the Popcorn Sale, and you can too. One fund-raiser in the fall will power your way through the entire year, over 70% goes back to local scouting and the risk is zero. So unless you like to writing checks every month for various programs give Jane a call today. 
School Night for Scouting 
Northern Lights is needing your help on September 17th! 6 to 8pm. 
On September 17th in Northern Lights District we will be welcoming over 500 new families into Scouting. We cannot do this without you, Please look for more information about how you can help. It is only two hours but it will change the lives of the youth around you! You can sign up to help with Bob Kochenderfer, 763-273-0470 llbk1@juno.com

The key activities at the Northern Lights Fall Camporee will involve building your own telegraph and sending messages through the "Singing Wires." In addition to building your own telegraph and raising the wires for the network, other fun activities will include compass & map skills, "Rescue Me" training, and a tomahawk toss, Troops are encouraged to bring their own supplies to raise-the-wires: 8' to 10' poles and rope to lash together telegraph pylons, and work on your Pioneering skills (and merit badge) at the same time! Scouts are encouraged to study Morse Code through the spring and summer so they will be proficient by September and the Fall Camporee.
