Central New Jersey Council
The CNJC This Week In Scouting e-mail list is made up of Scouts and Scouters within the Central New Jersey Council who want to encourage communication throughout the Council via e-mail.
Note that This Week In Scouting messages are often forwarded to additional distribution lists. Some readers may get more than one copy of a message. Based on past experience most people would prefer to get two or three copies of important information rather than zero. If you get a message that does not interest you, please feel free to use the delete button. If it is your responsibility; however, to forward information to your unit. Please try to avoid choosing subjects that are only of interest to you. The same subject that does not interest you may be of great interest to someone else.
If you would like to POST information on the Central New Jersey Council Website or in This Week In Scouting about a council or district event, please send it to the district executive or council staff advisor for approval.

- Shop Rite has a current promotion that offers free bags and free gloves to any organization that would like to plan a cleanup of our local communities in New Jersey. Whoever would want to request materials would have to call 1-800-ShopRite and give them basic information such as the date of the cleanup, approximately how many people will attend, the name of the organization (troop # would be fine) as well as who will pick up the materials from the local ShopRite store. We are hoping that a lot of people are willing to participate with this offer.
- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! - The Boy Scouts of America has been directed by Rex Tillerson, National President, to move the membership functions of recruiting, retention, and new unit start-up to an ALL-VOLUNTEER basis! To this end, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are looking to recruit new membership committee members at the Council, District, and Unit levels to help us GROW THE PROGRAM in the Central New Jersey Council. The time required will be commensurate with the duties undertaken, but so will the rewards! We have several positions available at all levels. Interested? Contact your District Executive, or Jerry Case, Council VP, Membership, at email@example.com.
