For Great Rivers Council Jamboree Troop C140, It’s Not the End, It’s the Beginning

It’s Not the End, It’s the Beginning of a Lifetime

PreparedForLife-fleur-de-lis-logoThe mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Experiences for young men and women through the Scouting program, like the 2013 Jamboree, help accomplish the vision of Scouting to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

For those of you that were in the Great Rivers Council Jamboree Troop C140, I hope you have many once-in-a-lifetime memories from the Jamboree experience.  Combine the memories, experiences, and newly forged friendships and surely it’s not the end, it’s the beginning of a lifetime of new opportunities.

Best-in-Class

The 2013 Jamboree experience was designed as a world-class program that included many opportunities for diverse, intense, and high-energy experiences.

Yet even the best program requires the persistent effort of youth and adult leaders, and the parents and families of participants and leaders, to support the activities.  A best-in-class program requires the best people to make it real.

Thank You

I offer my most sincere thank you to the parents and families of the youth and adult participants of Great Rivers Council Jamboree Troop C140.  Without your assistance and encouragement, no one in Troop C140 would have been able to attend the Jamboree.

I also thank the adult leaders.  Mike, Todd, Hank, and Brendan provided outstanding service to others through their leadership and actions.

I thank the thousands of volunteers and Scout professionals who worked to plan and implement the Jamboree experience at The Summit.

And the success of the Jamboree Troop requires the support of the Council professionals and staff, the planning committee that began making arrangements over two years ago, and the many providers of transportation, lodging, and equipment that is necessary for the Troop to attend.  I thank you all and ask, are you ready to start for the 2017 Jamboree?
