55th Group Auxiliary

The Timing is Right!
55th Group Auxiliary Forms

In accordance with BPSA organizational guidelines, we are pleased to announce the formation of a leadership group who will support the momentum of our third year, and beyond. The 55th Cascadia Group Auxiliary supports Section Leaders with finance, partnership and group planning so that individual Scout Leaders can focus on…scouting!

If you have business, development, finance, event planning, community relations, or other organizational passions — the Auxiliary Committee needs you! Auxiliary Committee members may be Rover Scouts, parents, community leaders and other strategic partner affiliates. Auxiliary Committee members are not scout leaders (i.e. not a Timberwolf Six Leader).

Brief objectives are to:

  • Sustain the strategic goals of the group
  • Support 55th events and camps
  • Provide administration: calendars, bookkeeping, etc.
  • Guide fundraising
  • Provide outreach
  • Build community partnerships
  • Coordinate with other Scout Groups

The 55th Group Auxiliary Committee includes Group Scoutmasters, Ethan Jewett and Travis Wittwer, and includes Kellie Jewett in the role of Auxiliary Treasurer. Rover Scout Laurie Perdue has accepted our appointment of Chairperson. Laurie brings to the 55th over fifteen years experience of marketing, community development and event planning. She is mom to Otter Scout twins, Jack & Hugh, and currently works as a mental health and addictions counselor at a local community health center.

The Group Auxiliary Committee will include traditional roles of chair, secretary, fundraising, outreach, etc. Our recruitment goals include bringing independent community leaders to the 55th, as well as providing a forum for parent volunteers to formally gather, share ideas and…lend a hand.

Yours in Traditional Scouting,

Ethan Jewett & Travis Wittwer
