CRVOO 2016 was another great success! Incoming youth leaders from across the region came together to plan for a productive and fun term! While the program team worked to come up with innovative events ideas, the communication team discussed better ways to reach Venturers across the region, and the administration team planned to help councils with their VOAs. At the conclusion of CRVOO, we were able to honor many of those who have helped our region grow by presenting them with Region and Area VLAs. We would like to congratulate, and thank you for your service, to all of those who were recognized! We hope to see you at CRVOO next year! Go Lead the Adventure! –Cathie Seebauer

Farewell from Michael Gunther 2015-2016 Area 4 Venturing President 

Hello Venturers! Thank you so much for such a great year! I had a blast serving as the 2015-2016 Area 4 Venturing President. Together we were able to accomplish more than I could have hoped for at the beginning of my term. I really just want to take this time to thank all the Venturers in Area 4. Whether it was coming to an area event, a council event, or hosting an event in your own Crew, everyone puts so much amazing effort into this amazing program. It’s by the enthusiasm and drive of each and every one of you that we were able to continue this great program. Every adventure, service hour, training, and advancement are helping to create the foundation for the future of Venturing. By expressing your interest and your love for Venturing, you are helping the program to flourish. I charge you all to continue to lead the adventure in your own lives, whether that be in your Crew, School, or Family. Again, sincerely, thank you all so much for a great year. Never forget to lead the adventure. Thank you, Michael Gunther Mer
