Former Group Scout Leader Mr Luigi Heredia – Visit to Belize

Visit from former Group Scout Leader and National Scout Assembly member

November 16, 2020

Luigi Heredia, Participating Member of the Belize Scout Foundation (BSF), accompanied by Hilberto B. Riverol, Executive Director for BSF, paid a visit to the construction site of the Sir Colville N. Young Building on November 11, 2020.

Luigi was the Group Scout Leader for the 9th Belize St. Ignatius Scout Group for many years, leading it to be one of the most successful Scout Groups in Belize.  He also served for many years as a member of the National Scout Assembly and National Scout Committee and held the post of Treasurer.

When Luigi migrated to Aruba to take up the post of Resort Manager with Costa Linda Beach Resort, it was a great loss for Scouting in Belize.  But Luigi has not been dormant in Belize Scouting.  He has over the years made it possible for Scouts from Aruba to participate in the Centenary of Scouting of Belize Scout camp.  He has always maintained close contact with Scouting in Belize and has provided funding for specific events.  In 2019 he successfully organized a reunion of his Scout Group that was held at Bird’s Isle in Belize City.

Most recently Luigi assisted the BSF with its 5,000 block campaign for the “Sir Colville N. Young Building”, home of Scouting in Belize.  Through his contact with former Scouts from his Group and business associates he managed to secure 1,130 blocks.  Additionally, Luigi contributed financially towards the Sir Colville N. Young Building.

A true Scout at heart who shows his commitment with action!

Luigi is married to Elena and has three children, Jenna, Luigi J and Joshua, all involved in Scouting.

Thanks, Luigi, we are proud to have you associated with the Belize Scout Foundation and wish you continued success in your endeavors.

The BSF takes this opportunity to express sincere condolences to Luigi and his family on the recent passing of his father Marcelino Heredia.  May he rest in peace.
