Baskervill Gives Back: Inspiring Students through Design Exploration
Baskervill Architects give a true sense of what it is like to work in the industry. Explorers in the Baskervill Post sample the many sides of the business, learn about interior design and visit job sites to see how contractors take building plans and turn them into steel, concrete, wood and glass. To learn more read the article at this link: http://www.baskervill.com/blogs/item/941-copy-of-baskervill-gives-back-inspiring-students-through-design-exploration#.UoInQvmkr4Y?utm_source=Explorer+Program+2014&utm_campaign=Great+to+see+you+at+DGS+Forum+2013&utm_medium=email . The Post will have an open house for the 2014 program on December 9th at their Shockoe Bottom offices. This program is open to high school age young men and women, preferably 10th grade an up.
Holiday Greetings from Council Scout Executive Brad Nesheim
The period from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day is always a very busy time for each of the 284 local councils that comprise the Boy Scouts of America. Several of the key, measurable criteria for Journey to Excellence are measured as of the end of December, including the number of registered youth members and trained leaders, and also the financial requirement of a balanced budget. It is easy to become so absorbed in pursuing these ‘numbers’ that I sometimes forget to take the time to express to the great volunteers, staff, donors and other supporters of Scouting my gratitude for what they, and you, do for the youth of our communities through Scouting.
This year, I am not forgetting to say thanks, so here it is: Thank you!
Because of you, Scouting is thriving in our council. The best recruitment season for new Cub Scouts in many, many years, with some 3,000 new members joining, means that our council will be serving nearly 13,000 youth members this year! I am most grateful to all the families in our council for choosing Scouting for their children, where they will find positive, life-changing experiences and values.
Everything that we do is for the youth members whom we seek to serve. For each youth member each year, Scouting is a new and great adventure and I am grateful to have a small role in this wonderful organization. It is a privilege for me to serve as a member of the professional service of the Boy Scouts of America, and especially to serve as the Scout Executive/CEO for our great Heart of Virginia Council.
So, again, THANK YOU for making Scouting the most effective development program for our youth! I wish for you a most enjoyable and meaningful holiday season.
*”I asked a Scoutmaster once, in a great city, how he managed his Saturday hikes, whether in the park or in the country? He did not have them at all. Why not? Because his boys did not care about them. They preferred to come into the meeting room on Saturday afternoons! Of course they preferred […]
