Membership and Popcorn Kickoff!

Wings oic

Start your fall on Wings of Exploration!  Join us for the Membership and Popcorn Kickoff:

Saturday, August 9th, 10am to Noon,  Muskingum Valley Scout Reservation

All leaders are invited, but every unit must have, at least, two representatives:  one for Membership and one for Popcorn.  These kickoff’s will be happening simultaneously so one person will not be able to attend both.

Click Here for info on Both Kickoffs! 

Arrive early and we’ll even provide a free breakfast! (This may be your last opportunity to eat in the dining hall before work on the expansion begins!)

 

Nightmare Challenge will support Scouting!

Click the link and start getting excited about the Nightmare Challenge!  September 6th, just North of Zanesville at the Nightmare in Nashport – Trail of Terror.  Proceeds from this giant mud-run will benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Muskingum Valley Council Boy Scouts of America.

Register to run at the link above, or, if your unit would like to help marshal the event, contact the Council Service Center.  We’ll need about 50  youth and adults along the trail and at the obstacles.  This promises to be a ‘Frightfully Fun’ event  - don’t miss it!

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.
