Do you have ideas for district event or are you being underutilized and have, more to offer to Scouting, or even want to just pass along your knowledge to another unit? We want you to join the district team! We aren't looking for your every waking minute, or even your whole year. We have positions that are seasonal, or year round. Don't want to take lead on a project? Perfect, we need members for committees. Maybe you are an organized person. But don't want to present at meetings or roundtable, fantastic. The more hands, the lighter the work. If you have a thought or question about any of this please contact District Chair Steve Antolak @ steven.antolak@antolak.com or District Commissioner Greg Richter grichter@hotmail.com.


With our Friends of Scouting campaign kicking up, Vicky Mehrwerth. Our Friends of Scouting chair, wants to make sure your unit has everything it needs to be successful. Most presentations should be happening this February and if you are unclear about when your Units presentation is or have yet to report one to the District, please contact Vicky at vickymehrwerth@hotmail.com.

If you have recently had a presentation and have your unit packet, please turn that in to one of the two Council offices within 48 hours of your presentation. If this is an issue, please contact Hayden Troy at htroy@northernstarbsa.org to get the packet picked up. These packets contain valuable personal information and we want to get them safely deposited as soon as possible. Thank you all for your time and support!


Hayden Troy will be joining our Northern Lights team as our Community Relations Executive. Hayden will work alongside our current District Professional.

Hayden is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse with a degree in Archaeology and Spanish. He is also a longtime Scouter and an Eagle Scout out of Troop 3424 in Lake Minnetonka District.
