MEETINGS

Briones District Round Table

Round Table is a district monthly meeting typically held the second Thursday of every month at the LDS Chapel  2360 Overlook Drive in Walnut Creek at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Round Table is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of Round Table is to give leaders program ideas, information on events and training opportunities, and an opportunity to share experiences and enjoy fun and fellowship with other Scouting leaders. As a result of the Round Table experience, unit leaders will be inspired, motivated, informed, and able to provide a stronger program for their Scouts.
