Do NOT STOP, please ... !!

Posted on Oct 25 2016 - 6:57pm

We have had several near-collisions in front of VRBC because parents dropping off Scouts do not pull all-the-way into a parking space. PLEASE help keep our Scouts SAFE by pullling into a parking space before you let them out. This will avoid DANGEROUS congestion in front of VRBC. Better yet, come on in and GET INVOLVED!! Also, please do NOT use the handicapped space UNLESS someone you are driving REQUIRES use of that space. That way it will be available to those for whom it is not only needed, but also NECESSARY. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our Scouts/Scouters SAFE!!

ACTION REQUIRED: Annual RECHARTER is under way, so please REGISTER!

Each year, BSA recharters every Troop and requires each Scout/Scouter to re-register for the following year. We have made this EASY FOR YOU. To re-register, click on this calendar event HERE

Scouting-related apps for your phone!

Posted on Oct 3 2016 - 3:14pm

T840 family, here is an interesting article about Scouting-related apps by the (Wood Badge-trained, Eagle Scout) editor of Scouting magazine: 
Note that, while I use some of these apps, this notice is NOT an endorsement of any of them. (RWIII)
