Volunteer Positions Open

We have a couple of positions that are opening up in case you're looking for a way to help out Pack 530 with your time and talent:

-Lions' Club Cleanup Chair:  Cindy Akihiro, currently holds this position and will be bridging over with her WeBeLoS-II son by February of 2013 and we will need somebody to succeed her in this capacity.  NOW would be a great time to get with her on how to do this job and learn all her tricks, secrets, and "methods to her madness" to get this job done for our Chartering Organization.

-Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator: this is a new position in the Scouting organization.  I included some information about this in a .pdf file entitled "ReligiousEmblemCoordinator_Brief_20121002" in the folder "Pack530 Access" on my Google drive (see attached below).  As the opening page says:

"Since the inception of the Religious Emblems Coordinator (REC) 
concept, it has been recognized that, like so many other Scouting 
functions, there needs to be a unit-level position to correspond to the 
council and district. The REC team is now complete with the addition of 
the Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator (UREC). The UREC is now 
recognized as a position on the unit committee. 

"The Unit Religious Emblems Coordinator position was created to strengthen units by building an infrastructure that would create cohesiveness between units and district- and council-level volunteers, ultimately to better serve youth members in the realm of Duty to God. 

"The responsibility of the coordinator is to educate, motivate, evaluate, 
and facilitate the religious emblems program at the unit level. In addition 
to serving on the unit committee, a key function of the position is to 
serve as the liaison to the District Religious Emblems Coordinator."

Some pictures of some of the emblems that can be earned are included with the .pdf file along with some frequently asked questions and other information.

If you are interested in either of these opportunities, see Cubmaster Scot Alexander, Cindy Akihiro (with regards to the Lions' Club) or me at our meeting tomorrow night or come to our next Committee Meeting Thursday November 8 at 7pm at the Castlio cafeteria.  You can also email me at
