Hi Mr. Sanders,

I hope that you’re having a great day and this email finds you well. I’m with Duke Athletics and am emailing to let you know about an event we’re hosting here at Wallace Wade Stadium in the upcoming football season. We are proud to announce the 4th annual Scout Night for the September 22nd game against Memphis.
On behalf of our Membership Chair, Craig McGannon, I want to extend an invitation for your unit to attend our 2012 Join Scout Night (JSN) kickoff to be held on Wednesday, July 25th at Edenton St. UMC beginning at 6:30. EVERY UNIT IN NEUSE RIVER DISTRICT SHOULD BE REPRESENTED AT THIS KICKOFF!

This kickoff meeting will accomplish the following;

Thanks to those who have already RSVP’d for the Annual Join Scout Night training to take place on Wednesday, July 25th at Edenton St. UMC.  This kickoff will begin at 6PM with a short JSN PowerPoint presentation followed by District breakouts where you will receive recruiting materials including pencils and yard signs.  Contact information will be collected so we can prepare flyers for distribution and we’ll be asking for units to “adopt-a-school” for flyer distribution.  Pizza will be available beginning at 6PM and we would ask that you help us offset the cost by contributing a minimal fee ($3).  We will also have a good number of (really nice!)  door prizes that will be drawn throughout the evening.  This event promises to be informative and helpful with all of your recruiting efforts this Fall.

If you have not yet RSVP’d your attendance to me at greg.sanders@scouting.org , please take the time to do so now.  This will be the only JSN training we will have so be sure that your unit is represented.  We have a limited supply of pencils and yard signs and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to get a supply of each to aid in your recruiting efforts.  I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, July 25th at 6PM.



In Scouting,



Greg

Attached please find the unit commitment form for our 2012 popcorn sale.  There are a few changes this year that I think most folks are going to like.  I hope your unit will take advantage of this convenient fundraising opportunity by taking a moment now to fill out and return the attached form.
