Venturing Report Annual Meeting 2014
Prepared by Sue Lisowski
In May, we were pleased to host the Court of Honor ceremony for Nick Lisowski, who attained the rank of Eagle Scout. His leadership project involved building and installing icon plaques with Twelve Steps of addiction around the exterior of the church, to be used as a meditative path. The final step/icon shrine was placed on a post in a new garden with stepping stones. The Venturing crew has been less active as a group this year, but is open to anyone ages 14-21. We would need more adult volunteers if we are going to be able to do any outings. We continue to help out with service at events in the church, like PADS, the blood drive, and the Diakonia Dash race held by Sts. Constantine and Helen. This year we are adding a focus on keeping in touch with our college age students, to help them maintain ties with the church. Please submit to me the addresses of students who have gone away to college, so we can send care packages and get them in contact with their campus OCF [Orthodox Christian Fellowship]. Also, if any youth involved in scouting, of any age, either boys or girls, would like to work on the religious awards offered by the Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting, please contact me and I will help you through the process.
