Welcome to Mid-America Council's Lewis & Clark District

District Roundtable
Join us, November 5, 2013, the first Tuesday of the month, at 7:30 pm at Ralston High. Sign up for Snow Corps.

Speaker TBD.

Cubs will make simple Christmas decorations and we'll announce the 2014 Silver Beaver class. If you are still working on Re-chartering, bring your information with you and get some help! If you have it done, turn it in! Bring your committee members, parents and OA members with you to Roundtable!

OA members meet during Roundtable.

Roundtable helps unit leaders stay "in the know" about current events, training and activities. Mingle with other leaders and swap tips and tricks for an easier, more fun Scouting program. For more information about Roundtable, please contact Jeff White at jeff37j@cox.net.

See you at Roundtable!

Welcome Lewis & Clark District Chair Brian Brownrigg
Please welcome Brian Brownrigg as our new Lewis & Clark District Chair. He is looking forward to serving and learning about the district, current and future units, as well as working with the council, to promote Scouting and grow participation levels across eastern Omaha. Brian is a sponge for ideas and welcomes all input.

Raised in Omaha, Brian has lived most of his life here. He was a Life Scout while at St. Margaret Mary's grade school, Unit 378. He met his future wife, Kate, at Central High school, and had enough good sense to marry her ten years later. After spending six years in Chicago, Brian and Kate returned to Omaha with their daughter Lauren, now eleven, and have two more children, Harrison (eight) and Ava (three). They have been back in Omaha for nine years now and live in the Dundee neighborhood where they grew up. Their two oldest attend St. Margaret Mary's, and Harrison is a Bear Scout in Pack 378 who loves Pinewood Derby and finding snakes during pack hikes.

Brian is a consultant with MarketSphere Consulting, which is based out of Omaha. He specializes in Marketing Operations, and works with clients all over the country. In his free time, he enjoys swimming, running, cycling, golf, and working around the house. He serves on the Board of Directors for Completely Kids and the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center.

You may contact Brian at brian.brownrigg@marketsphere.com, or by telephone at 402.392.4017
