Well, after years of talk, speculatoin, and rumor. My district is combining with the district to the south to make a single county wide district. Chapters, well, merging by default.
History, the districts were once one, the Francis Scott Key district, witht he boundries of our county, Frederick County Maryland. In 2003 they were split north and south, right through the middle of the county seat, to make the Catoctin Mountain (north) and Appalachian Trail (south) districts. What's old is new again, as the combined district and chapter will be called Francis Scott Key.
Looking forward to the new chapter. The scouts should be better able to staff their committees and teams. They'll have to figure out who's chief, co-chief, or whatever. For practical purposes, the merger is effective right away, budget and paperwork, January 1, and they don't have chapter elections scheduled until April.
