Oxcart Trails & Lakes District Merge
After careful consideration and discussion with key volunteers of the Oxcart Trails and Lakes District, the decision was made to merge the districts together. This change will take effect immediately. The discussion of merging the two districts has been ongoing for the past few months and with a single professional staff it made logical sense to bring the two together.
What is changing:
As this is a new district, a selection committee comprised of members of both the former Lakes and Oxcart Districts, met to review a new district name. The new district name is Prairie Fire and will be numbered as D2. A Facebook page and council webpage will be created and information from the previous two districts will be merged and duplications removed.
The interim Key 3 will consist of Adrian Panther, Mike Denke and Brenda Thomson. The district committees will become a single committee. A nominating committee will be formed to help with the leadership selection of the new district. The district committee will meet on the first Thursday of the month at 6:00 pm and will be followed by Council roundtable and district breakout. Due to the Governor’s order, attendance at these meetings will be via Zoom. Meeting links and agendas will be provided in advance.
What is not changing:
Units will remain the same and numbers will not change. Unit program will not be affected by this change. We will continue to offer a Summer Day Camp with camps being held in Alexandria, Fergus Falls and/or Perham each summer. Drop points for Spring Product Sale, show-n-sell popcorn, take order popcorn will remain the same.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either Thomas D. Huether, Field Director, or Brenda Thomson, District Executive.
