Lone Star District
Lonestar Drive-in Awards! Jan. 23rd!
District Eagle Recognition and Award Outdoor Reception, Jan 23rd
This is not your typical awards reception. What was once a dinner is now an outdoor drive-in awards presentation. Come and get popcorn, a candy, and a small water and watch as we honor our 2020 Eagle Scouts and the adult leaders who help our district go. The OA will sell soft drinks and more candy as well if desired.
Note: We will use a sound system and a small stage to bring people up and be seen. You may step out of your cars and social distance. Bring a chair and possibly a lantern and if it is warm sit outside. We will also broadcast the audio over radio on 1610 AM so you can sit inside of your warm cars if the temperatures require it.
Cost: $5 per person. Please try to register ASAP so we have enough of what we need. Eagles are free. Get more information and sign up here:
Who: All Lone Star District Leaders and the Class of 2020 Eagles (2020 Eagles are free)
What: Join us for an outdoor reception as we give thanks to everyone that made the 2020 Scouting year count!
When: January 23, 2020 at 5 pm
Where: Stonebridge United Methodist Church, 1800 S Stonebridge Dr, McKinney, TX 75072
Come help us celebrate another great year of Scouting!

District Crossover, Sunday, February 28th at 3 pm
Please set aside Sunday, February 28th at 3 pm for the District Crossover brought to you by the Lone Star District Wicahpi Chapter of the Order of the Arrow. All Webelos 2’s are invited to “Crossover” in this group setting. ALL Scouts and Scouters are invited to come out and watch for FREE. It is $5 per Webelos to participate and they will each receive a totem made by the Order of the Arrow. Important things to remember are 1) be sure to sign up early so the OA knows how many totems to make and 2) be sure if you have selected a unit, you have notified them as well. Scouts are welcome to participate even if they have not chosen a unit yet. There will be some great photo opps… so bring your cameras!

We have a number of Scouters from our district who have participated or staffed. We would love to collect and share why you would recommend the course to others.
Loss of a great Scouter, Bob Gates
It is with a sad heart that we share the passing of a long standing Scouter from our district. Bob Gates was taken from us due to COVID. Bob worked with the OA and the district committee for years before moving.
