Roundtable is a district monthly meeting typically held the First Thursday of every month at the St. Mary’s School 1158 Bont Lane in Walnut Creek at 7:00 pm to help unit leaders plan and carry out their own program. Roundtable is a form of supplemental training for volunteers. The objective of Roundtable 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.
