This is directed toward Joan but maybe of use to someone else:
With today's logon, I have 43 messages to read or reply to. Its hard
but I set aside one hour and a hlaf each day to read all of my military
mail and then my mail from EKU. It is sometimes hard to get on the system
at home...there are only X number of lines connected to modems and
with the current status of military ops here, they get used up quickly.
But I try to respond to everything that is posted the same or the next day.
If I don't, please be patient with me........
SME....I support SME as a "blanket" donation only because I HATE SME time!
I hate the idea that I have to "convince" parents that the Council's
support is in their best interests. But I do it....I do it well...and
in my units that I have served as Scoutmaster or Advisor, $48.00 a year
to support the BSA (wait a minute...I said $12.00 a year!!! $480.00 would
go to the Council from the PACK...) $12 a year per family is a VERY reasonable
fee to support a good council.....I ask for a lot more when I come to your
unit and do a SME presentation!
Yes, I agree that in a low-income unit, even $12 is a lot of moola! I offered
that only as an example....I have seen chartered partners to "foot the SME"
bill for their units...
