Throughout the year, you and the other adults in your units provide outstanding scouting programs to your youth. While none of us look for recognition in our work, it is important that we take time to thank each other for work that is outstanding. On May 11, 2019, our Twin Valley District will hold its 60th Annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner to thank leaders who have provided service to youth throughout the Tri-Valley area. At this time, we are looking for nominations from you and other adults throughout units and the district to provide this thanks and recognition. We are currently taking award nominations through March 31, 2019.
This year we have four ways to conveniently nominate someone for Unit, Unsung Hero, Scouting Family, and “Spark Plug” nominations. See http://twinvalleyscouting.com/activities/twin-valley-district-dinner/ for awards nomination forms and the District Dinner RSVP forms. For questions, please contact Phil Weiss (phil [dot] weiss [dot] firstname.lastname@example.org)
Make sure that your Eagle Scout and unit get recognized in the broader community by submitting a press release to the local newspapers.
Fill out this form: Twin Vally Eagle Scout – Information for Press Release. Details about how to submit are included in the form.
Twin Valley is pleased to announce that Dean Buchenauer has accepted the role of Twin Valley Eagle Coordinator for Pleasanton/Dublin/Sunol scouts.
Dean is replacing Doug Olsen, who served our scouts with dedication and skill. Doug has set a high bar for Eagle Coordinator, but Dean is already proving he is up to the task.

We are disappointed but we find we need to cancel the 2019 “10 commandments hike” for scouts. We were unable to secure commitments from churches in the area. We did have support from a few Jewish. Muslim, and Hindu worship centers though. We will try again for 2020.
The February roundtable will take place on the 7th instead of the 14th. We are moving the roundtable so scouters can enjoy the Valentines holiday with their families. There will NOT be any roundtable events on the 14th.
