Reflecting on an Extraordinary Evening: A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Speaker and Donors

The echoes of laughter, inspiration, and unity still reverberate in our hearts as we gather here, the week after our remarkable Annual Scout Leadership Dinner. It was an event to remember, one that celebrated the spirit of scouting and the dedication of our remarkable community. Today, we extend our deepest gratitude to all who made it possible – our incredible speaker, Mike Erwin, and our generous donors. Together, we’ve raised over $40,000 to further the mission of scouting here in the Muskingum Valley Council.

A Night of Inspiration

Saturday night, we had the privilege of hosting Mike Erwin, a decorated Army veteran, successful entrepreneur, and founder of the Positivity Project. Mike’s presence was nothing short of inspiring. His words resonated deeply as he shared his experiences, his commitment to leadership, and his passion for scouting. We couldn’t have asked for a more captivating speaker to grace our event.

A Heartfelt Thank You to Mike Erwin

Mike, your dedication to developing leaders and your unwavering support for scouting left an indelible mark on all of us. Your story, your commitment to service, and your call to action have ignited a fire within our scouting community. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your wisdom and inspiration with us.

A Tribute to Our Generous Donors

But it wasn’t just our speaker who made our night so special; it was also our incredible donors. Your support, whether through financial contributions or your time and effort, is the lifeblood of scouting in the Muskingum Valley Council. It is because of your generosity that we can continue to provide life-changing experiences for our scouts, instilling in them the values of leadership, character, and community service.

We are thrilled to announce that, together, we raised over $40,000 during the Annual Scout Leadership Dinner. This significant contribution will empower us to expand our programs, enhance our camps, and provide opportunities for even more young people to experience the transformative power of scouting.

A Heartfelt Appreciation to All

To all who attended, whether as donors, volunteers, scouts, or members of our scouting community, your presence was a testament to your dedication to our cause. Saturday night was a testament to what can be achieved when a community comes together with a shared vision.

As we reflect on this extraordinary evening, let’s carry the spirit of unity, leadership, and service forward. Let’s continue to support and nurture the next generation of leaders within our scouting family.

Once again, thank you to our remarkable speaker, Mike Erwin, and to all of our wonderful donors. Your support is shaping the future of scouting here in the Muskingum Valley Council, and we are deeply grateful for your commitment and generosity.
