Re: the handicapped boy who wants to join cubs but is "too old": after some
discussions with the D.E. and the Director of Field Services, it is (as
several of you pointed out) perfectly ok to allow the boy to enter a Webelos
Den. His parents are delighted. They are not concerned with advancement,
but the social interaction and the importance of 'belonging' to a group
since his physical handicaps rule out sports and most other activities.
Thanks to all of you for your information and support. I will be in contact
with some of you by private e-mail for more information.
