Celebrating 100 Years — A Shining Light
For the first time in the history of the Boy Scouts of America, we will be bringing the entire Scouting community together for a single, nationwide event to celebrate our organization and reflect on what it has meant to millions of America’s youth.
On Saturday, July 31, 2010, at 8 p.m. EST, the Scouting family — past, present and future — will be able to take part, in a special nationwide broadcast. A Shining Light Across America will bring the Centennial Celebration Show from the 100th Anniversary National Scout Jamboree in Fort AP Hill, Va. to communities across the country via Webcast and satellite transmission.
As part of this monumental event, local council, district, unit, and other Scouting groups across America will gather in venues large and small — whether a camp, community center, or a sports stadium — to host their own local activities leading up to the Shining Light broadcast. We are encouraging everyone to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the magic that has marked 100 years of the Boy Scouts of America. Members of the entire community at large – Scouts, Scouting volunteers, alumni, families and community supporters – are invited to join in the festivities.
We look forward to shining a light on our rich heritage, on our core values and on our role in shaping America’s youth. We hope you will join in the celebration!
