Second LDS December Recharter Turn In, 6 to 8 pm Wed, Dec 18th

Calling all LDS committee chairs.  Jordan Ray, the field director over our district, will be at the Eldorado LDS Building to accept the paper portion of the December recharter this coming Wednesday from 6 to 8 pm.  Stop by with your completed paperwork and meet Jordan.

Please speak with your unit commissioner if you have any questions.


We do have one suggestion for your online recharter.  It is required that you use Internet Explorer to run the online recharter website.  Since the qualify of the program this year by National Council the Internet Explorer has been updated and is causing all kinds of grief for recharter.  First try not to let your copy of Internet Explorer update to the newer version.  Second set your copy of Internet Explorer to compatibility mode when running the website.


Tools -> Compatibility View settings -> Add this website: scouting.org


Hope this helps.
