Skyuka To Provide Three NYLT Scholarships

Skyuka Lodge is graciously making three (3) scholarships available for members who are interested in attending the upcoming 2014 Palmetto Council National Youth Leadership Training course at CBH.  The recipients will be chosen from those who apply using the online form linked below.  The lodge agrees to cover $150 of the $175 cost for the course. Want to know more about NYLT?  Check out the course webpage for more information on this week-long event that is full of fun, fellowship and more.  The course website is www.PalmettoNYLT.com. Deadline for applying to be considered for one of the scholarships is February 10th, 2014.  The lodge Key-3 along with the NYLT Scoutmaster will choose the three recipients from those that apply.  The lodge will notify those who are selected so they can complete a registration form for the course.  Those who were not selected will also be notified so they can register for the course on their own before the March 1st, 2014 deadline. This is an excellent way for the lodge to support the development of our own members into better, stronger leaders.

Thank you to all that applied for the NYLT Scholarships

Very Few Limited Edition NOAC Fundraiser Sets Remain

Skyuka NOAC limited Edition Flap and Pocket Cover

Only a few of these very limited edition Skyuka NOAC Contingent flap and pocket cover sets remain, so act quickly if you would like to own one or two sets.

Designed to commemorate those Skyuka delegates who attended the 2012 NOAC event while raising funds to help cover the cost of transportation for those who plan to attend the 2015 100th Anniversary NOAC event, only 50 of this set were ever produced, and much fewer remain available for purchase.

Because so few are still available, those interested are asked to contact Doug Bartlett to see if any remain for purchase.
