Nashua Valley Council has an ambitious membership plan for 2014! Our plan is simple: Provide every boy, grades one through five the opportunity to join Cub Scouts this fall.

Simply put, we plan to recruit at every elementary school in our council. Every Cub Scout pack has traditional schools that they have recruited from in the past. Our District volunteers will review that list, compare it with the list of public and private schools in our council and make sure that no school is left out.

One critical part of the plan is to hold all recruitments in September. Waiting until October is too late as parents find other activities for their children to become involved with. We have designated the third week of September as Join Cub Scout Week. We ask that your pack make every effort to hold your recruitment between Tuesday and Thursday of that week (specifically 9/16, 9/17 or 9/18). We plan on helping our Packs saturate our market area with publicity, and getting the word out.

We look forward to helping your Pack have a great fall recruitment night.  There are some simple steps that need to be followed now. We have provided a timeline of a few simple tasks to accomplish in the next month. Please fill out the enclosed form and send it back into the office as soon as possible. Thank you in advance. Together, we can “fill up our Dens and recruit more leaders”!

On July 1, Nashua Valley Council's longtime office manager, keeper of Eagle Scout applications, DCAD coordinator extraordinaire, Popcorn General, and all-around supporter of our Scouts, Paula Iacoboni Richard will retire after more than than 30 years as part of the Nashua Valley Council staff. Our volunteers and our Scouts have been blessed and fortunate to have had Paula's support through the years. Although we will miss her, we wish her well as she embarks on this next part of life's adventure.

Paula asked us to publish this note to express her thoughts to the many volunteers and friends she's worked with over the years.
