2016 Council and District Service opportunities

Requirement 13 of the Post-Graduate Challenge is:

Share your leadership skills through “Service to Others” by serving on the staff at one district or council activity. Describe in your notebook the date, place, event, and what you did. Check the yearly council calendar for ideas. Have this page of your notebook signed by the activity director.
