Centennial District on Facebook
In our ever-expanding attempts to educate, pass along useful information and reach out to the community, the Centennial District has a Facebook page that can be found here.
Among the things you can find on the Facebook page are:
- Threads for upcoming events and changes in them.
- Useful articles on how to improve your unit, Scouts, or leaders.
- Opportunities to connect with other troops, packs, crews, and teams to find out new ways to improve your unit and coordinate activities.
Have you ever cried out, "Can't I just put all the rank advancement on the web?!" Well now you can! Scouts have a page to update and progress scout advancement. Internet Advancement can be found here.
For information on Internet Advancement you can contact Greg Richards at 303.246.3950.
The Internet Advancement area works best in certain versions of Internet Explorer, works all right in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, and has been fighting with Mac users and Safari for a while now. If you find that Internet Advancement and Safari have reconciled their differences please let us know and we will all cheer for their reconciliation as well as update this page.
Opportunities to Serve
There are always ways to serve and be a member of Scouting. At the district level both the training committee and the commissioners are looking for people to help out.
Training people on the committee are needed to help fill out curriculum, find areas that are lacking and help fill them. If you are interested, contact Ryan Thompson.
In the Centennial district there is a need for Unit Serving commissioners. If you would like to help make the units in the area stronger please contact Russ Larson.

Unit Leaders - New Web Feature To Attract Potential Scouts To Your Unit
BSA has developed a new web feature called "Be A Scout". It uses Google Maps to help parents of potential new Cubs, Boy Scouts, Venture, and Explorer members to find your unit. With this feature, a parent or potential Scout enters their address and it shows the units near them and information about those units.
To make this work, you need to enter the information about your unit that you wish to present. You may enter special information about your unit, meeting times and address, leader's names, phone numbers, addresses, and e-mail addresses, and other information you wish to show potential new members. You only need to present the information you wish to. Only unit leaders (Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, Crew Advisors, Chartered Organization Rep, or Committee Chairman) may enter the information for your unit. Make your unit's information special to attract new Scouts.
See instructions to manage your unit's information. For any questions or technical concerns with this feature, contact the National Service Help Desk at 972.580.2267.
