Friends of Scouting Annual Fund 2015

Posted on Mar 18 2015 - 9:43pm

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.

An important period of time in Pack 788’s Scouting Year

Posted on Feb 12 2015 - 1:14pm

This is a very important period of time for this scouting year.    Under the den leaders and your supervision your scout has been completing activities, tasks and partaking in fun activities while trying to complete their rank advancement requirements (badges).   NOW is the time to make a strong effort to finish up the rank advancements before the Blue & Gold Banquet on March 20, 2015.   This requires communication and working with your den leader in order to properly reflect your son’s accomplishments in our tracking system.   As a den leader this is the most difficult task, one that is made easier with the parents’ assistance.
