Welcome Julie Evans as MVD District Executive
It is always heartening to know that there are many good people who want to make Scouting successful. This was obvious during the District Executive (DE) selection process. Members of the MVD Committee participated in the final round of interviews – and it was a hard choice since we had very strong candidates. But – we are absolutely elated at the choice of Julie Evans, who starts Monday, July 27 as Mountain Valley District’s new DE.
Julie Evans is a native Montanan, born and raised in Billings. She has an excellent background in Scouting as a participant and volunteer. She was a Girl Scout, and attended camps every summer. She worked as a camp counsellor during college, for a total of 18 years in Girl Scouts. Julie became active in Boy Scouts with her son. She served two years as a Webelos leader, and five years as Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 649 in Belgrade. And yes, her son did reach Eagle!
Julie knows our District since she graduated from MSU in Interior Design with a Minor in Business. She has been working ever since at an Interior Design business in Bozeman. She has excellent business, organization, and management skills from her time in this industry and she is now ready to apply these skills to Scouting full time.
Julie is passionate about community service, and not just in Scouting. For the past 12 years she has served as an EMT volunteer on the Big Sky Ski Patrol and an American Heart Association CPR instructor. She brings to Mountain Valley District a heart for Scouting, knowledge of our community, diverse skills, and a commitment to serve youth. It is just a wonderful bonus that her interior design skills can be put to good use in MVD’s patch designs for upcoming events. So – welcome aboard Julie!
If you want to meet her in person, come to a special District Committee Meeting on Thursday, July 30 7:00 p.m. at the Scout Office.

Cub Scout Day Camp Report!
What do you get when you combine 130 boys, fabulous leaders, sunshine, and a Wild West theme?
You get a great day camp!
Beginning at 9am and going until 4pm, on June 12 and 13th, it was non-stop fun, and some learning, too. With two teepees set up outside and a pokey, boys had a glimpse of the adventures to follow. Of course, BB Shooting and Archery are always a hit, but throw in sling shots, Capture the Flag Western style, hike with snakes in the grass and Pony Express Obstacle Course, the boys loved it. They also got to play some Indian games, learn to lasso steers and make knots on the hitching post, make dream catchers, teepees, build fires without matches, learn about furs, and safety around trains, AND earn their Whittlin’ Chip so they could buy knives at the Trading Post. Yep, the Trading Post was also a hit, with a huge assortment of toys, games, knives, snacks.
Thanks to all our pack volunteers who manned the activity stations as well as kept their posse’s together, Camp Directors Diane Stovall and Kristie Basset, along with Medic Ray Mines, Photographer Keith Nathan and Markie Nathan manning the Trading Post, and Tom Gregory as our range master, and the District support setting up and taking down – Dave Eubanks, Bill Otto, Dave Burkenpass, and special help from Montana Council with fearless leader Gordon Rubard, and boy scouts, keeping scouts fed with snacks and cool with misters.
Everybody helping made this a great event for all who came. Thanks everyone!
