Popcorn Sales 

We are encouraging everyone to sell $100 individually as well as work as many shifts as possible during the sales event.  As a reward for your hard work, not only will your scout receive credit in his scout account, but a contest will be run and prizes will be awarded based on sales volume and time spent.  For every $50 sold individually and for every shift worked during the sales event, a scout will receive a chance in a drawing for prizes.  Adults who participate in the sales event will also earn their scout another chance per each shift worked.

If you have committed to selling already – Thank you!

Protecting Gods Children Training 

Everyone working with youth (including youth outside of scouting) can benefit from this program. Note there are significantly more classes taught now than at crossover. 

AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN HOW TO BE A PROTECTOR OF CHILDREN 

Mon Aug 29    Tues Sept 20    Wed Oct 26   7PM

IMMACULATE CONCEPTION PARISH HALL

316 OLD ALLERTON ROAD ANNANDALE   08801

PLEASE PREREGISTER YOUR ATTENDANCE at www.virtus.org

3 hour “PROTECTING GOD’S CHILDREN (PGC)

Course mandated by the Catholic Dioceses of New Jersey for their volunteers including all Scout leaders chartered by Catholic institutions.  This course meets requirements for 3 hours professional development credit for teachers and medical care personnel.

To view a list of all diocesan PGC classes and preregister please log onto www.virtus.org, then select Registration/ View a list of Sessions/ Metuchen, NJ Diocese and then Immaculate Conception-Clinton(Annandale) so that adequate materials and set up can be arranged.  For persons required by the Catholic Church to take the course computer registration is mandated.  Note additional classes will be taught for a group of at least 6 persons upon request.

These programs are open to anyone interested in learning about child abuse and most particularly, child sexual abuse, in the United States.  The primary purpose is to arm Boy Scout volunteers with the knowledge necessary to keep children safe, to identify persons and practices that represent a threat to children, to understand legal obligations and pitfalls and to change caring adults’ behavior in ways that will make it more difficult for predators of children to succeed.  

The Protecting God’s Children program is restricted to adults who are defined as persons over 18 who have graduated from high school;  however some classes have a special teen leader section.  A teen’s parent must have taken the course, provide written permission for their teen to attend the course and discuss in advance with the instructor.

Attendees are asked to arrive on time and remain the entire class to receive credentials for attendance.  No children are permitted present. 

Although teaching both “Catholic” and “Boy Scout” courses the program material is aimed at all who honor a duty to God, family and community.  The trainer, Nora Burke Klippstein (klipclan@att.net), is a Boy Scout leader actively living an interfaith marriage.

The www.virtus.org website is a valuable resource for anyone interested in keeping all children from age 0 to 18 safe.  Check it out for a course preview.
