I've been in the venturing program since February 2016 for Crew 288 in Ponte Vedra. Since then I was elected president, attended NYLT, completed my Vision, staffed Woodbadge twice, achieved the Discovery Award, and have now joined the officers as Secretary. I enjoy writing, both fiction, and nonfiction, and helping everyone stay organized.

Historian: Lawrence Dutton

Hi I'm Lawrence and I like to take photos! I use a Canon SL1 for digital photos and my Konica for film photography. I wouldn't say I prefer one to the other, I just capture different types of photos on each with obviously different mediums. As an officer I hope to take a TON of photos that we can all look back on at the end of the year and reminisce about the good ol' venturing days. I have some ideas for things I could initiate if they aren't already (such as a photo album/mini yearbook of sorts for venturing) but I'm always open to suggestions and criticisms. 

The VOA Historian is in charge of documenting all VOA Events through photos and videos. The Historian works with the VOA officers and webmaster to post pictures on the website.

    I have been participating in venturing for four years now, with this being my third year on the council officers association.
