By definition, a fireside chat “is an informal, yet structured, conversation between a moderator and guests”.  Please join us on Thursday, November 7, 2019, for an “informal, yet structured, conversation” about Scouting, Twin Valley Council, Cedar Valley or Western Prairie Districts and your unit.  

Nothing is more informal than conversation around a dinner table.  A potluck dinner will begin our conversation (please bring a dish to share, your own table service and beverage) at 6:30 p.m.  We’ll spend the next 90 minutes eating, laughing, and talking about how we can make Scouting strong in our communities.

Please join us.  We are asking you register for this event.  Registration is open until Tuesday, November 5, 2019.

Breakfast With A Cause

Sunday, December 8, 2019
WowZone, Mankato
8 a.m. – Noon

Twin Valley Council will be hosting “Breakfast With A Cause” on Sunday, December 8, 2019, from 8 a.m. – Noon.  We are hoping you will join us at the WowZone in Mankato for a wonderful breakfast buffet filled with scrumptious eggs, potatoes, bacon/sausage and more!

What an easy way to help your Council?  Simply purchase a breakfast buffet, enjoy the food, and a portion of the proceeds comes back to Twin Valley Council.  It’s that simple!

Plus that same day – those Scouts who sell $1,500 or more of popcorn during the 2019 sale will attend the WowZone Event that afternoon.  

So put Sunday, December 8, 2019, on your calender and make $1,500 your 2019 popcorn goal!  

We’d love to fill the WowZone with Scouts!
