  1. SAR attends BSA Birthday Bash

    Just 65 miles away from Colonial Williamsburg in the Tidewater Area of Virginia’s coastal region lies Fort A.P. Hill.  This part of our country that is so steeped in our nation’s history was the location of the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th Anniversary Celebration National Jamboree, a distinct milestone of its own.  Bearing the motto “Celebrating the Adventure - Continuing the Journey” this gathering of 35,000 scouts, 6,000 scout leaders, and 7,000 staff  was truly awesome.
