The Blue Envelope fall campaign is here and should be hitting mail boxes shortly! We need Valley members to step up for our charities!

  Donating to the Blue Envelope appeal not only helps our charities, it helps our Valley with the Valley of Excellence program, and it helps you as members reach a mile marker in the Pathfinder Program.  Make a minimum donation of $1, record it in your Field Book (PF-SP-008) and log it on your members page. 

  Donate today, whether it’s $1, $10, $32, $100 or more! Every member’s donation counts towards our goal!
