Greetings All, As some of you may be aware, last week I gave my notice and will be leaving Pine Tree Council on Friday July 31st, 2015. My decision has been the result of many factors, but mainly I have an opportunity to utilize an education grant to further my education and need to get my applications for graduate school in order. It has been a true pleasure to work alongside each of you and I thank you all for the memories and laughs I leave with. Going forward from Friday, Ron Lemons will be taking over as the new York District Executive. He can be reached at ronald.lemons@scouting.org or 207 797 5252 ext. 21. I hope many of you will remain in touch. I can be reached going forward at owmaguire@gmail.com. Thank you all for all you do for Scouting. And until we meet again, may the great Scouter of all Scouters be with you all until we meet again. Best regard, Owen Maguire

York District Roundtable at Camp Nutter - June 04, 2015
(posted 2015-06-02)


For honor! For glory! For Scouting! Most of all, for fun!

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, District, or Order of the Arrow, let’s see who will bring home the totem!

Be prepared to test your scout skills at the June York District Round Table. Participants will be challenged to complete a series of Scouting tasks that will test their woodsman as well as their administrative scouting skills.

Bring your appetite, cookware, heating method, recipe, two pounds of hamburger, and buns to compete in the Ultimate Burger showdown.

Materials will be provided for all other events. Here’s a hint: Before getting all fired up, get your bearings straight because when you’re tied up in red tape, even donuts won’t get you out of a jam.

Don’t forget to bring someone new and earn an extra point for your side!

7:00 PM EST

Camp Nutter
East Shore Drive, Acton, ME 04001
