Twin Bayou District Roundtable
November 11, 2021 | 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of the month at Blanton Scout House located behind St. Luke's Methodist Church, 3471 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77027. Blanton Scout House is on West Alabama just east of Edloe. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers and helps unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. The objective of roundtable is to give leaders program ideas; information on policy, events, and training opportunities; and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the roundtable experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
