Posted on January 1, 2019 by Ed Mulholland With the new year come many exciting opportunities for the Muskingum Valley Council. We are very pleased to welcome the units of Washington and Pleasants counties that are officially joining us today! These units bring a wealth of experience and passion which can only make our council even better. We will complete the expansion and renovation of our Scouting Resource Center this spring. The new facility will help us better serve Scouts and leaders throughout the council. Beginning in February, we welcome young ladies in Scout Troops of their own. They will experience the same exciting and challenging program our boy Scouts have experienced for years. In their own troops they will have leadership opportunities as patrol leaders and senior patrol leaders. They will camp together and begin their trail to Eagle.ScoutFest 2019 promises to be an awesome celebration of Scouting! Every Pack, Troop, Crew, and Post should plan to be a part of this weekend encampment. Units should be reserving their campsite now. The annual Nut Sale is a great way for individual Scouts to earn money toward their summer camping adventures. Camp Director Dominic Lehman says it’s ‘Game-on!’ and he has some exciting plans for Summer Camp at MVSR.The Council Staff wish you all an exciting, challenging and adventurous new year! We’re ready for some serious Scouting – see you on the trail!
