Exiting News about our District Executive!
Mountain Valley District Scouters:
I have some exciting news to share. I understand that our District Executive, Julie Evans, has been promoted to a Development Director position with the Montana Council. I am certain this promotion was earned as a direct result of Julie’s strong abilities at fundraising, event coordination, and program development/execution. She truly has earned this advancement! Her office will remain in Bozeman. However, she will be transitioning out of work on direct district operations as a new district executive is identified. Mountain Valley District, though, will continue to benefit from her expertise especially in the area of district finances.
When you see her please congratulate Julie on this exciting opportunity, she CERTAINLY HAS EARNED IT! Dave Eubanks, our district commissioner, and I will be working closely with Julie during her transition. We have also offered our assistance to council staff as they search for, select, and on-board a replacement district serving professional.
Mountain Valley District will continue its long tradition of meeting and exceeding strategic goals in the areas of finance, membership, advancement, program, training, and community service. Indeed, one of Julie’s greatest legacies during her service to the district is working with key district and unit leadership in the delivery of the highest quality programs and services for those youth involved in the Scouting movement.
I will keep everyone in the loop as further details emerge regarding this promotion and efforts to find a replacement.
Yours in Scouting!

Bug Hunter's Day Camp was a success!
Bug Hunters Day Camp was a great success with 19 packs represented and 158 boys attending. The cafeteria was filled with bugs hiding in all the plants on the walls, and we had a giant spider greet the boys as they arrived! Besides the ever-popular BB Shooting, Archery, and Sling shots, the kids loved catching fish at the River Rock Ponds and earning their Whittlin’ Chip. The boys also got to race “lady bugs”, go on a buggy scavenger hunt, made tic tac toe games out of rocks, learned about bugs in the jeopardy game, ran an awesome obstacle course and learned about bad bugs! Of course, the trading post was also a huge success. One note: If you bought a defective binocular at the trading post, we will refund your money or exchange it at the scout office. We want to thank Darigold for providing milk for us and for the summer lunch program for providing lunches for all our hungry boys. Thanks to our staff: Diane Stovall, Kristie Bassett, O. J. Palmer, Julie Evans, Tom Gregory, Russ Bassett. Thanks also to our volunteers who took the shooting sports training. Our volunteers are the best!
Summer Camp's are in full swing!
