MVD and $250 per Scout - How Are We Doing?
Do you think Scouting is worth $250 per Scout? How would you know? There is some new information out that we will be posting that helps show just how much Scouting help youth to be happier, kinder, better people.
We aren't doing all that well here at MVD with our fundraising - and I don't think it is because our leaders, parents, and the community doubt the value of Scouting. Asking for money, or writing a check, can be difficult. Although Scouting works through the effort of volunteers, it also works because every year we raise the needed money in the amount of $250 per Scout. This is what is costs to keep the lights on, camps running, and insurance bills paid.
What can you do to help MVD find our still needed $22,686 for 2015? LOTS!
MAKE PHONE CALLS - We are doing an Call Down one or two nights in November. You get to talk to people about Scouting, and ask that they support the program. E-mail Julie and we will keep you posted on dates.
CONTRIBUTE - Have you filled out your ICL card yet? We will send you another if you need it. Just contact the office, or go ON LINE to the Council site.
ASK - Ask anybody who you think is blessed, and willing to share to make scouting possible, to make a donation. Ask friends, other family, employers. We can send them an ICL card, or you can send them the ON LINE link above.
RECOMMEND a CONTACT - Are you uncomfortable asking, but willing to give us a name and phone number of someone who loves Scouts? Send in the information to me and I will be happy to call them personally.
Betsy Eubanks, MVD Chairman -
willing to ask ANYBODY FOR MONEY TO SUPPORT SCOUTS :-)

Scouting Builds Positive Character Marketing!
Hey Mountain Valley District Scouter's!
This article came out on October 28th through ScoutingWire and it was also presented at the last top Hands.
We wanted to make sure that each of you receive it, review it, so it can get used in the marketing of the Montana kids . This could help Scouters that are looking for ways to recruit and sell scouting. This is the Tufts Study.
I know some of you have seen this but, did it get out to our Parents?
This page includes a presentation and Dr. Richard Lerner’s explanation of just how Scouting Builds Positive Character.
If we can get this out to as many parents as possible it can have a big impact on membership, Program etc.. in the Montana Council.
Read the study and watch the video by going here http://www.mvdmt.org/tuft-study.html
What is your unit doing these days?? We would like to show off your Scouts. Please send our webmaster some pictures and a short caption to post on the District Page!
