Venturing Report Annual Meeting 2013
Prepared by Sue Lisowski
Over the summer, the Venturing crew participated in a service project with the organization Feed My Starving Children. They helped with preparing dried food relief packets, called Manna Packs, which were to be distributed to hungry children in third-world countries like Haiti.
They also helped with fundraising for the church's Missions team. On Christmas Eve, some of the crew members helped serve dinner to the homeless through the PADS program. Plans for 2013 include a Lenten retreat at a cabin in the forest preserves. We will also continue to participate in service projects and scouting activities. This is a great way for teens to acquire required service hours for school. We can also help any Boy or Girl Scouts who would like to earn their religious award through Scouting, for any age. Please see me if you would like a project booklet.
The Venturing Crew is looking for new members. It is open to boys and girls age 14 through 20. Applications are available now. There is an opportunity to earn Scouting awards and a religious medal. We are also looking for adult volunteers. The BSA provides online training.
