Trails End Popcorn not only tastes GREAT - the Pack and Troop and your Council all profit from it. Units that choose to sell help Scouting in 24 counties and 4 cities - we all gain from popcorn sales. Thank you Scouts and parents for helping Scouting. (js17Nov08) 11/17/2008 10:08 PM

Notice the 3 word on the blue shirt (Leadership Friendship Service) - sounds like OA to some Cardinal District Loads Popcorn ShowNSell

Popcorn Loading
Popcorn is a GREAT way for Packs & Troops to generate their own funds for Scouting - and helps run the Council that supports them! On Saturday 27 Sept. 2008 Scouts of Troop 700 Ashland and a half dozen brothers from Alpha Phi Omega, University of Richmond chapter loaded almost 2,000 cases of popcorn. Units sent vans & trucks to be loaded for the Show N Sell product, double checked the counts, then headed off to set up tables and let the Scouts SELL. Charlotte (Cardinal Popcorn Kernal) organized the orders and picking up, and has been promoting sales all year. Charlotte and the Cardinal District look for even MORE volunteers to show at 0730 Saturday 15 November when we'll load twice as many vehicles and twice as much popcorn to fill the SOLD orders. If you come help - you get a doughnut and an handshake Nov. 15, 0730 - 1200. Thanks for the Sept. service project APO brothers (yes guys some "brothers" in APO are girls), chapter advisor Paul, Troop 700 and our other adults! 11/06/2008 07:46 AM

All These Scouts Doing a Good Turn THANK YOU GUYS 2008 Susan G. Komen National Race for the Cure

Race for the Cure 2008
We had a Great turn out for the event with about 55 scouts/scouters in attendance. This was by far the best year in the four years we have had the privilege of participating. Along with Troop 736, we were once again joined by the following Troops/Crews: Troop 715 (Jerome Golfman) Troop 760 (Richard Brett) Troop 799 (Kenny Jones/Tim Goodman) Crew 736 (Jim McCoig) Our Scouts and Scouters arrived by 7:00am, helped set up tables, chairs, carry boxes and most importantly got the opportunity to serve as race marshals and cheerleaders for all three races. The 1k children's fun run, the 1k senior walk and the main 5k event. I believe we were able to finish up around 11:30am, well ahead of schedule. We had so many compliments and encouraging words about the Scouts from the Race Committee, volunteers and so many of the race participants and survivors. It really made us proud of all the scouts in attendance. They really took the cheerleading and servant leadership responsibilities to heart. We are already signing up the group for next year!!!

Tom welcomes everyone Roundtable Meeting for October 2005

October Roundtable

The October roundtable meeting was the first held in our new location at the Virginia United Methodist Conference Center. It was also the first time in recent memory where we actually had the Boy Scout leaders and Cub Scout leaders together for the beginning of the meeting. It was a little chaotic as we adjusted to the new space but it appears to be a perfect venue for this monthly gathering of Scout leaders.
