The Turning Point District is one of five districts in the Twin Rivers Council. The District serves over 1,300 youth in 67 units.
Our District's geographic footprint has historical significance as the Battle of Saratoga, fought in the fall of 1777, is recognized as the Turning Point of the American Revolution. While the Saratoga battles at Freeman's Farm and Bemis Heights are at the southern part of the District, prior to these battles the British suffered heavy losses as they moved through Fort Ann and Fort Edward.
The administrative functions of the district and its committees are overseen by the volunteer District Chairman, and the unit-service aspects of district operations are managed by the volunteer District Commissioner. The professional District Executive advises the district's top leadership and serves as a sounding board for concerns. Together, these individuals comprise the District Key-3.
District Meeting dates/information are listed on the Council calendar. The District Activities Committee meets at 6pm on the night of the District Meeting. The Commissioner Staff meets at 6:15p on Roundtable nights listed on the Council calendar.
Roundtables are held at Trinity United Methodist Church, 155 Ballard Rd., Gansevoort (Northway exit 16; east of Northway on Ballard Rd.)
