D3-Indian SpringsTeepee Talk Newsletter

The Teepee Talk newsletter is produced monthly as a PDF file in conjunction with the Indian Springs Roundtable and sent to Scouters via e-mail. Each issue contains upcoming calendar items and events, news and information from around the world of Scouting, an exciting Scout game, a recommended campout in the local area, and our district "rare merit badge counselor" list.
