The highlight of our annual recognition event is the presentation of the Silver Beaver Award.  The Silver Beaver selections committee has met and is pleased to announce this year’s honorees:

Joel Daniels,   Dan Riley,   William Shriver

Don’t miss ‘Scouts Saturday';  this  year’s sportscast themed recognition event, Saturday, February 21st, 2-4 PM at the North Terrace Church of Christ in Zanesville.  You’ll want to be there to help recognize these three deserving Scouters.

See the post below to watch the video promotion. The event is free (we will accept donations) and tailgating food will be served.

We welcome $100 table sponsors to offset the cost of the event.  Contact Ed Mulholland at the Council Service Center: 740-453-0571

Straker Cabin now ready for your unit!

We are pleased to announce that the new Straker Cabin is now available to rent for weekend camping. The heated cabin is located just off the main parking lot at MVSR. There are four sleeping rooms, each with two double bunk beds, for a total of 16 beds. Additionally, there is a large gathering space containing four picnic tables. A group larger than 16 could have several additional Scouts sleep in the gathering room. When renting the cabin, a unit will also get access to the flush toilet located at the Welcome Center just a few hundred feet from the cabin. There are additional rest room facilities in the nearby kybo at the Kiwanis shelter. Cooking is not allowed in the cabin – a fire ring will be located outside the building. Units are encouraged to bring cooking stoves for use outside the building if desired.

The cabin rental is just $75 per night, or $125 for a weekend rental.

Units wishing to rent the cabin should contact the Council Service Center at: 740-453-0571

Consider a great weekend at camp with a warm dry bed at night…. Hope to see you there!

Support the Raymond Nicholson II Eagle Scout scholarship.

These are the patches that were made for Ray Nicholson’s scholarship. $10 each.  Ray earned his Eagle Scout right here in the Muskingum Valley Council.  The Scholarship is a great way to honor Ray’s life and accomplishments while supporting current and future Scouts. All proceeds go directly to the scholarship account.  They are available at the Council office and at Fink’s where Ray worked.

These are the patches that were made for Ray's scholarship. $10 each. All proceeds go directly to the scholarship account. I have 50 of them.  They are also at the Council office and will be at Ray's benefit later this month.
