Friends of Scouting Annual Fund 2014

Posted on Apr 10 2014 - 11:59am

We had our Friends of Scouting presentation at our recent Blue and Gold Banquet, which is what I wanted to follow up with you about. We had a wonderful ceremony and now I am following up on all those envelopes.  As you also know, 

At the ceremony, we delivered a wonderful speech and video about what Scouting means to us, the families and parents of current scouts.  It was quite moving.  Please check out the video at http://hovc.org/supportScouting/fos-family-campaign/.  It is well worth the two minutes it takes to watch it. 

Our Pack 788 Goal is to achieve 100% participation. This means that every family has the opportunity to support Scouting by returning the pledge card they will receive. Please return your pledge card.

You can write one check now to bring with you to our next meeting or I will have more pledge cards at that meeting and you can pledge an amount to be paid over the year by monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or one payment at a later date.

 Thank you for being a Friend of Scouting and allowing us to work with your son!

Pack Service Project - CARITAS Lunches on 3/31

Posted on Mar 27 2014 - 9:55pm

The Pack 788 service project has been scheduled for Monday, March 31st at 6:30pm. We will be meeting in the Education Building (Room 202) at Christ Church to prepare bag lunches for CARITAS (Congregations Around Richmond Involved To Assure Shelter). CARITAS is a great organization in which a number of churches around Richmond help the homeless by providing shelter, meals and services. During the week of March 31st, Christ Church will be welcoming and helping a group of homeless women. The lunches that we make on Monday will feed the CARITAS guests on Tuesday. The lunches will include a sandwich, chips, fruit and dessert. The scouts will also be asked to write a short note or draw a picture to place in the lunches.

We ask that you please volunteer to help with this service project. Only 30 lunches need to be made, which should be very easy to accomplish. Please follow the link www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0A4AA8AB23A75-pack1/8398848sign to sign up so we will know how many scouts will be participating. For additional information, contact Tom Tyler at 804-677-1626 or ttyler@irr.com.

Go ahead and register your scout now for Day Camp, before the price increases Tuesday! Even if you aren't sure which parent will volunteer on which day, you can figure that out later. You also have time to pay - payment isn't due until mid-May. BUT if you don't register online by Monday midnight, the price goes up!

Cub Scout Day Camp (Days of Knights) will be held June 16-20th at Deep Run Park. Day Camp is an exciting opportunity for scouts to participate in Archery, BBs, Fishing, Sports, and many other fun activities. For interested scouts, the Scout Registration Guide has more information and instructions on how to register. Please note the following KEY Points: 

  1. The On-Time Registration Price is $85 through March 31st
  2. After March 31st, the price with late fee increases to $95 during April, $105 during May, and $120 during June.
  3. Registrations will close at the end of day on June 5th or earlier if camp fills.
  4. Day Camp runs by volunteers only. For your scout to attend, one adult family member must volunteer as a chaperone one day that week, or you can volunteer for Set-Up or Take-Down the Sunday prior or last day of camp (Friday).

Dear Scout Parents,

Scouting provides many rewarding opportunities for your son to discover the ability to lead, to teach, and to instill confidence in others.  For the past 100 years, the Heart of Virginia Council, Boy Scouts of America, has provided programs designed to prepare young people for life!

The success of Scouting in Central Virginia depends on those who support it. That includes the work of adult volunteers, the encouragement of parents, and the financial investments from Friends of Scouting! Your support is needed now more than ever, to provide a quality Scout program to over 12,000 young people in 24 counties and 4 cities across central VA.
