One Shining Moment

Scouts have had massive jamboree gatherings before. But thanks to the magic of technology, this summer will bring the largest family reunion in Scouting’s history. At 8 p.m. EDT on July 31, “A Shining Light Across America” will broad-

cast across the country from the 2010 National Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. The BSA’s entire family—Scouts, adult volunteer leaders, alumni, families, and communities—has a chance to take part in this unforgettable experience.

A Brush With History

Over the 100-year history of the BSA, the organization has had only two official artists: the immortal Norman Rockwell, whose iconic paintings from 1913 to 1976 became the public face of Scouting for millions, and former Boys’ Life art director Joseph Csatari, Rockwell’s colleague and friend for more than a decade who took up the torch. Now, Csatari has captured the essence

of the 100th Anniversary in a beautiful painting that will preserve the special memories of this year. Get the 11-by- 14-inch poster for $5.99 or a handsome framed print for $99.99. Find information on ordering both by searching for “1910- 2010 Csatari” at scoutstuff.org. Reflecting from his studio in South River,

Scouting plans to make the exciting program, including top enter-

tainment acts, stunning visual effects and music, and appearances by well-known former Scouts, accessible nationwide via Webcast. Select councils, districts, and units will receive the broadcast by one-way satellite transmission, while others will take part by two-way satellite transmission—allowing them to broadcast their own Shining Light activi- ties back to the jamboree site. As part of this event, local councils, districts, and units will gather in

venues large and small to host their own local activities leading up to the Shining Light broadcast. For ideas about creating your own memorable activities, visit scouting.org/100years and access the Shining Light Toolkit on YourSource. Planning is also well under way for

Shining Light activities in New York City, according to Bill Kelly, a develop- ment officer with the Greater New York Council. On July 31, Kelly says, jumbo video

screens in Times Square will air the broadcast, and visitors can camp at two local facilities accessible by public transportation from Manhattan.

N.J., on the history he and Rockwell made so vivid, the 80-year-old Csatari notes that the values and traditions of Scouting remain as strong today as ever. “American values, family values, and Scouting values are synonymous,” he says.
