Update to Eagle Palms! They heard you!!

All current Boy Scouts — even those who completed their Eagle Scout board of review before Aug. 1, 2017 — are now entitled to receive Eagle Palms for merit badges earned before their Eagle board of review.

Previously, only those Scouts with an Eagle board of review date on or after Aug. 1, 2017, were eligible for these Eagle Palms. Now all current Eagle Scouts can receive Palms for additional merit badges earned before their board.

This is a revision to the 

change announced on this blog on July 10, 2017
. The move comes in response to passionate feedback from volunteers and was approved by the BSA’s National Executive Board.

Here’s what changed and why.

Scout Planning Worksheet is a new tool to help Scouts perfect planning skills

When planning an Eagle Scout service project, you have to identify a goal, recruit a team, plan transportation, purchase materials, consider safety and plot each step.

It’s a lot of work.

So much, in fact, that in an ideal world the Eagle project wouldn’t be a Scout’s first experience with formal, documented project planning.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the ideal world.

The BSA has released the Scout Planning Worksheet, a new tool that Scouts can use to plan patrol or troop activities. The goal is to build project-planning prowess that will benefit Scouts in their Eagle project, at school and in life…….Article continued here at

Annual Friends of Scouting Dinner

9528District Key 3: Dist. Commissioner Heather Mulvihill, Senior Dist. Executive Geoff Angle,
District Chairman Bill Mulvihill, representing Huguenot Trial.

Heart of Virginia Council’s

Annual Fundraising Dinner was held at the Richmond Convention Center
 10 March, 2016 with guest speaker Rex Tillman CEO for Exxon Mobile Corp. delivering an insightful speech on how scouting shaped his career from the time he was made an  Eagle Scout at the age of 13 years. Mr. Tillman is a past National President for BSA serving from 2010-2012 and encouraged everyone in attendance to participate in some form with the annual campaign to support scouting in Central Virginia. The Annual Friends of Scouting campaign raises money to support our camps, service center and scout programming for the year; taking the budget and dividing it by the 12, 000 scouts we have in our Council comes to $250 per scout per year in operating expenses. Please give generously when asked at your next Blue & Gold Banquet or Court of Honor. Scouting is making a difference in the lives of our youth and not only “prepares scouts for life” but prepares our country for the future.
