Upcoming Events:


Show your HVC PRide and order your Jambo Swag Now

We can show our HVC pride and feel the Jambo experience along with our contingent.

On Saturday, July 22nd, the scouts will be attending a stadium show where all of the scouts will watch a massive scouting festival event. Jamboree is encouraging us to wear "local flair apparel" to the show. The entire contingent will wear their HVC Class B t-shirt on July 22nd. In the past this stadium event is broadcast online - free for folks to watch from home. How cool would it be if friends, family, brothers, sisters, and pets all wore our HV t-shirts on July 22nd and organized some Watch Parties?!

There is a hard deadline of June 14th so it can be in and sent out before Jamboree.  This is a one-time order.  And I think the HVC shirt is really cool this year and matches the trim or the patches!  The hat is a Boonie Cap, (the final design is not shown) and will have a Jambo logo and HVC embroidered on it as well.  

The Hudson Valley Council is pulling up anchors on July 17th & setting sail to the Bechtel Summit. You can be a part of the experience by purchasing the 2017 Patch Collector Set for Hudson Valley. Save, Trade & Display this limited edition memorabilia.

Sloatsburg Resident Becomes Eagle Scout

Suffern High School senior Garrett Nicholson's project was a paved walkway at The Valley of Heroes at the Sloatsburg Community Fields.

Sloatsburg Resident Becomes Eagle Scout

From Rockland County: Rockland County Executive Ed Day congratulated Suffern High School senior Garrett Nicholson of Troop 2146 on becoming an Eagle Scout at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. His community service project included the construction of a paved walkway at The Valley of Heroes at the Sloatsburg Community Fields. The “Heroes Walk” leads to two monuments honoring World War II veterans. “Thank you to Garrett for beautifying this area that draws more attention to the monuments dedicated to our heroes,” said County Executive Day. “I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”


 

Boy Scouts work hard to leave no trace…but the Rockland District Cub Scouts left some tracks today!
The Rockland District, of the Hudson Valley Council in New York, held its 2017 Pushmobile Derby on May 7th. Beating an unusually cold afternoon and light spotted showers, the District Cubs, leaders and families united to show off their hard work on their cars.
And hidden in all the fun was some great learning and advancement opportunities. For young Cubs, building the car is a first opportunity for engineering and construction. The local fire services taught about first aid and fire safety. Local Troops and Crews facilitated everything, including cooking, camping and hiking demonstrations, knots and lashings, crafts and more!
Their hard work paid off. All in all, it was a great day for everyone.  Thank you Jack Meyers for all the great pictures!

CONGERS - A walk was held in Congers Monday to honor veterans and local heroes.

The Carry The Load walk took place on Lake Street and Burnside Avenue.

Hundreds of walkers took about a one-mile trek with the American flag. The walkers then handed off the flag to other walkers to continue the journey into New York City and eventually Dallas, Texas.

The flag came from Boston and made a pit stop in West Point before it reached Congers.

The Carry The Load organization was started in 2011 by a former Navy SEAL and aims to restore the memories and sacrifices of the veterans who served overseas.

The goal is to get the flag down to Dallas before Memorial Day.
