The District Committee of the Pine Tree District of Central Minnesota Council seeks volunteers to fill positions on the committee.

Pine Tree District executive Kenneth Toole said people do not have to be a current member of the Boy Scouts of America to volunteer.

A scouting district is a geographical area of the local Boy Scouts of America council, determined by the council executive board. District leaders mobilize resources to ensure growth and success of units within the district's territory. All districts are responsible for carrying out four standard functions: membership, fund development, program and unit service.

The Pine Tree District serves the counties of Morrison, Crow Wing, Aitkin and parts of Cass.

Members of the committee serve a one-year term.

"The committee helps to provide guidance for the units within our district, it helps to execute the program laid out by the Boy Scouts of America and it puts together special events, such as camporees, district level pinewood derbies and Cub Scout events. The committee also plays an instrumental role in recruiting and creation of new units," Toole said in a news release.

The Pine Tree District Committee meets once a month at the Brainerd Salvation Army. Those interested can contact Toole at kenneth.toole@scouting.org or 218-780-0694.
