Welcome to the Green River District website. Our district serves the communities of Auburn, Black Diamond, Covington, Kent, Maple Valley, Newcastle, Pacific, Renton, and Skyway.
From the DE:
In a section about community gatherings and events, here is what the Public Health Department says: “During this critical period in the outbreak, if you can feasibly avoid bringing large groups of people together, consider postponing events and gatherings.”
It has been recommended that each district is to cancel March events, including Roundtables, District Meetings, Merit Badge Fairs, and Scouting for Food (an update to the website and an email will be coming to leaders today/tomorrow Scouting for Food.)
With this recommendation form leadership of the Chief Seattle Council it has been decided to cancel all District events this month including the District Committee meeting tonight, Roundtable next Thursday (March 12) and the Merit Badge Clinic. It is unknown at this point if the Clinic will be rescheduled.
Units also have tough decisions to make about holding their own regular meetings and outings. Those decisions can be made at the unit level. If you feel the need to cancel I would encourage you to find a way to engage with your families in a way to encourage them to continue to do stuff at home, or have digital meetings.
