Conditional Charter Removed from NWSC
In a three way conference call this morning (May 1), the Regional and National office has removed the Conditional Charter status from NWSC effective immediately. I was told to express the job well done to the Board, districts, professionals and all the other volunteers that worked so hard to turn this around. While this is wonderful news, we still have many miles to go and we need to remain focused on growing and funding our excellent programs. I am very proud of the entire Council, have a great sunny weekend. Matt Thornton

As a part of this grant, solar panels will be installed at Camp Lakota along with educational software for scouts to use to study the efficiency of the panels and much more! We will be scheduling a Solar Celebration to showcase the new panels and display our renewable energy program at Camp Lakota.
