BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA VISIT NO. 4 HAMILTON PLACE
We were delighted to welcome the The Transatlantic Council, Boy Scouts of America to No. 4 Hamilton Place on the 27th February.
The Boy Scouts of America enjoyed a delicious savory canapé reception and networking in our Marshall of Cambridge room, the perfect setting for such an occasion.
Vincent Cozzone, The Transatlantic Council CEO, spoke to us about the event and the Boy Scouts:
“The Transatlantic Council, Boy Scouts of America was established in 1950 to serve American families living overseas. We serve 5,300 youth in 35 countries throughout Europe, North Africa and the Near East. Our London community came together on February 27th for an evening of fellowship. Vincent Cozzone, Transatlantic Council CEO, spoke about the organization’s plans for the 70th Anniversary of D-Day event on April 24 to 27. We will welcome Scouts from our organization, the Scout Association, as well as French, German, and Polish Scouts at an international jamboree with the theme, Messengers of Peace.”
Their keynote speaker was former Chief Scout Executive, Bob Mazzuca. Mr. Mazzuca, who retired as director of the Boy Scouts of America in August 2012, was delighted to find the portrait of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scouting Movement in our reception area.
