Due to the inclement weather, tonight’s Fox River District Roundtable has been cancelled.
Please LIKE & SHARE this post on Facebook or with your Units so we can get the word out quickly.
Tomorrow we are still planning the District Dinner as expected. If that changes, we will update the website at foxriverbsa.org as soon as we know.
Congratulations to the following volunteers for being nominated and selected by their peers for being the finest in the Fox River District. We’re very proud to have you!
If you want to attend the District Dinner this Friday February 8th, we need to hear from you by 4:30PM TODAY! (Tuesday 2/5/13) You can call the Racine Office and talk with Pat or Gina to get signed up.

As many if not all of you have now heard of the tragic fire at the Echo Lake Farms Produce company in Burlington, WI. Please keep the 300 individuals and families that have been impacted because of this fire in your thoughts and prayers. The loss of 300 jobs will also have an impact on the community of Burlington, WI. If we become aware of ways that the Scouts in Fox River District and the Three Harbors Council can offer support or assistance we will share it with the entire council.
Yours in Scouting, Margaret

The National Radio Scouting Committee is pleased to announce that the BSA Awards and Insignia Committee has approved the Amateur Radio Operator rating strip for wear on youth and adult uniforms. This rating strip recognizes the member’s availability as an amateur radio operator for communication services for events and activities, as well as for emergencies.
When we’re outdoors, temperature means everything. Not just the temperature that our thermometers read and the weather forecasters say, but the temperature we actually feel. So, what is really going on when a strong gust of wind picks up out of nowhere and makes it feel like the the temperature dropped 10 degrees — even though the reading on the thermometer has not changed?
