“Gathering of Eagles” Recognition Dinner

All of Monmouth Council Eagle Scouts, who earned their award in 2014, are invited, along with their parents and Scoutmasters to this fabulous evening at Sheraton Eatontown Hotel, 6 Industrial Way East, Eatontown and will begin with a gathering period starting at 6:30 pm on Friday, May 15, 2015.

In addition to the recognition, and dinner, the NESA chapter would like to match each Eagle Scout to a Career Mentor/Sponsor. Could you be that person?

The responsibilities of the career mentor/sponsor are as follows:

  1. Contact the Eagle Scout and try to arrange a date, hopefully prior to or the day of the dinner, to discuss education & career opportunities in the mentor’s field. This date may also involve a tour of the workplace or facility (remember that Youth Protection rules are in effect, and there is no one-on-one contact with any of the Scouts).
  2. Attend the dinner if possible, cost is $45 per person, and seated at the Scout’s table with his parent(s).

The NESA Chapter is developing a database of potential Career Mentor/Sponsors. This will allow us to easily match any Eagle Scout that may attend this year, or any future dinner, with a Career Mentor/Sponsor in a field he is interested in. While we cannot guarantee a match for the upcoming dinner; if a potential match arises we will contact you first to make sure you available. If agreeable, we will then provide you and the Scout with each other’s contact information. Eagle Scouts, non-Eagle Scouts, and women are encouraged to volunteer as a Career Mentor/Sponsor.

Twin Lights Fitness Challenge

What could be better than getting in shape and helping Scouting at the same time? If this sounds like something that you would like, please participate in the Twin Lights Fitness Challenge.

The Fitness Challenge is a program created by the Twin Lights District to encourage our Scouts, Scouters, other volunteers and their families to fulfill the Scout Laws promise to “keep myself physically fit” and at the same time help raise the funds needed to keep Scouting strong in our district. This program is starting at the beginning of the year so that we can take advantage of New Year’s resolutions as well.  So take the challenge and get out there.

For more information please see this guide: Twin Lights Fitness Challenge Participant Guide
