2015 Eagle Project-of-the-Year


The Five Trails District Eagle Project-of-the-Year for 2015 was awarded to T840's Alan Ritchie. Alan's creative project was to assist students at Coppell High School (CHS) who have limited mobility to experience some aspects of everyday life that many of us take for granted. Alan worked with the CHS Special Education department to prepare vignettes available to students on their iPads using a special application. Alan led friends, fellow Scouts, and several Adult Leaders while they recorded scenarios at various community locations that these students might not normally get to visit due to their severely limited mobility. To allow us to see an example of the recordings, Alan posted a sample video on YouTube. To see this video, click HERE.

Circle Ten Tornado Relief Fund

A Scout is HELPFUL .... Several Scouts and Scouters lost their homes in the recent tornadoes. Circle Ten Council has set up a Tornado Relief Fund to assist them. You may find the link for that relief fund herePlease give generously ... like you would want someone to give if YOU lost everything. 

 

2015 Annual Five Trails District Eagle Project of the Year Award

 

Five Trails District will have our 2nd annual award for the Eagle Scout Project of the Year. The nomination form is here.  The deadline for submissions is 12/31/15. The award will be given to the winner at the District’s Annual Recognition Dinner on January 29, 2016, and will be automatically entered as our nomination to the Circle Ten Council's Eagle Project of the Year Award contest.

 

The person nominating for the award is not a criteria for the award. Thus, a Scout may nominate himself. A parent may nominate his or her son. But, the Scout must have completed his Eagle Board of Review between 1/1/15 and 12/31/15 to be considered for this award.

 

If the Eagle Scout does not have the capacity to scan the documents to be considered, you can deliver the documents to me and I can scan the documents and return them. Call or text so that we can make arrangements.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Dave Ross RIP

[Webmaster note: Until recently, Dave Ross served as Five Trails District Commissioner.]


dove

From Alan Mossman - Retired BSA Executive:
It is with sadness and regret I inform you that our retiree friend David I. Ross passed away last Thursday evening at Baylor hospital. Dave served faithfully as a member of the national staff with Council Information Systems. His main interest and activity have always been dedication to the BSA and Kiwanis.

He has no next of kin surviving in the area and it is my understanding that there was no Last Will and Testament, so his dear and caring friend Charlotte Hudgin in Irving is handling his final affairs. She is awaiting a judge’s ruling.

Dave wished to be buried next to his mother in Chicago and that wish will be fulfilled. Charlotte told me that there will be a memorial service in the DFW area sometime in January after a date has been arranged. I will keep you posted as I receive further information.

 


Dave, we at Five Trails District thank you for your service. Rest in peace as you go to that Great Campsite in the Sky

Were You Beaded "Recently"? 

At the Annual Five Trails District Recognition Dinner, which will be January 29 (NOT 25th), 2016, we will recognize Scouters for their 2015 activities and accomplishments. At this dinner, the program lists all Scouters who have been beaded for Wood Badge. But ... there is only one person on the list who has been beaded since 2008! And that is JUST NOT CORRECT!

So, check the list here and IF your name is NOT on the list AND you HAVE been beaded, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so she can get your name added to the list!
