2010 National Scout Jamboree

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

The 2010 National Scout Jamboree is a gathering of 43,000 Boys Scouts and leaders from across the United States and from around the world.  Jamborees are held every 4 years (although the 2010 Jamboree was moved to make it fall on the 100th Anniversary of Scouting in America), and we are fortunate that (since 1981) the Jamborees have been held in Virginia.  To help our boys experience the thrill of seeing a Jamboree up close – and to celebrate BSA’s 100th Anniversary in style – Pack 883 is organizing a Jamboree day trip.

 See the attached flyer for more details:  Jamboree Trip Flyer

 Please call me at (410) 977-2956 or email me if I can be of any additional assistance.

 Yours in Scouting,

Scout Sunday – RESCHEDULED for this Weekend!

Monday, March 8th, 2010

To celebrate the anniversary of the founding of Scouting in America, the Boy Scouts of America asks its members to attend their place of worship in uniform at a religious service in February. This is commonly known as Scout Sunday (or Scout Sabbath).

St. Joseph Catholic Community will celebrate a special Scout Sunday Mass on Sunday, March 14 at the 6:00 PM Mass. Please plan to attend (in your uniform) with your family.

If you are interested in participating in the Mass (altar servers, lectors, cantors, Eucharistic ministers, etc.) to highlight your connection to Scouting, please email Tess Carroll at

For those who are not Catholic or who are not members of St. Joseph Catholic Community, BSA encourages you to wear your uniform to your religious service on the weekend of March 14. (Check with your place of worship to see if they have planned a special Scout Sunday/Scout Sabbath service.)
