The Simancek Family became the newest James E. West member as they celebrated their son Dimitrios’ return from the Boy Scout National Jamboree this summer. The Simancek Family believes in the positive power of Scouting and all it has done for them and Dimitrios. After such an amazing Jamboree experience they wanted to “pay it forward by giving back” to Scouting through a James E. West to help ensure Scouting for future generations of Scouts. In addition to their annual Friends of Scouting support, their James E. West gift recognition goes to the endowment where it grows and supports local Scouting programs in perpetuity. Pictured l-r, Jeff Simancek and son Dimitrios receive the James E. West certificate in front of the OCBSA council honor wall from OCBSA representative Devon Dougherty. Not pictured is wife and mother, Clysta. For more information on ways to honor Scouts, Scouters and loved ones through the James E. West fellowship along with legacy planning for your family through the Heritage Society, please contact Devon at 714-546-8558 x145 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
