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.

The Kentucky Derby Festival Week of 2010 brought a number of SAR Color Guardsmen and their families to Louisville during the last week of April. On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 28, color guardsmen and their wives were invited to the home of Secretary General J. David Sympson and his wife Evelyn for an open house, complete with authentic Kentucky mint juleps! From there, the crowd moved on to the nearby Louisville Boat Club for a "boat race party," celebrating and watching the Kentucky Derby Festival Great Steamboat Race on the Ohio River.
