District news

+  Cradle of Texas District Pack 398 in Jones Creek take a quick rest after decorating their tree as part of the "Christmas in the Creek Celebration."

+ Congratulations to long time Cradle of Texas District Volunteer Kirby Rapstein.  Kirby earned the William T. Hornaday Award earlier this year and was recently presented with it.  He was submitted by Scott Dick for his many years of conservation work. Left to Right: Kirby Rapstein, Michael Griffin, Scott Dick, Richard Talasek

+ The Cub Scouts in Pack 398 out of Jones Creek Texas have been busy.  Multiple Bobcats were awarded, Flag Ceremony Patches were earned along with their Crossover Ceremony.  The Weebs From Pack 398 joined the newly formed Troop 398 tonight in the Cradle of Texas District.  That's what I call Scout Spirit!

+ Clayton Lackey’s Eagle Scout Project was quite an undertaking.  He supervised and planned two “Welcome to Brazoria” Signs.  As you can see, the signs are quite impressive.  The City of Brazoria now has four “Welcome to Brazoria” Signs thanks to the efforts of the Boy Scouts in Troop 524 in Brazoria Texas.  Way to go guys! The Cradle of Texas District is proud to have a great group like Troop 524.

+ The Cradle of Texas District is always seeking volunteers to help serve on the District Committee, as well as to help organize and carry out events. We are also continually seeking organizations to partner with to create new units. If you are interested in volunteering or chartering a unit, please contact the District Executive for more information.
