I thought that it was about the time I should introduce myself to everyone
My name is Mark Orlovsky and I am from Milwaukee, WI. USA. I am currently in
the process of re-starting a troop at my parish, Christ King
Church. The Troop # 117, NW District, Milwaukee County
Council. This all started when I called the local council office and
inquired to nearest troop to our church/son's school. In the process of
doing so, was recruited by the DE to get the troop back up and running.
My Scouting experience includes:
Life Scout, ASPL, Brotherhood OA, OA District Vice-chief, JASM, ASM,
Explorer, EA, Ship Skipper.
I went "underground" when our son was about 1 1/2 years. He is now 1 month
from being 11 years old. I had always dreamed for the day when
I would be able to introduce him to Scouting,
little did I know that it would also include being his SM :).
Anyways I am currently getting ready to hold the orientation meeting Oct 5th.
Mailing invitations, contacting the church and school, etc. Next week I will
be going down to Scout HQ to buy my uniform. I sort of feel like I did
26 years ago when I was getting ready to attend my first meeting.
Hope I am not rambling but I do have a question; are there any husband/wife
leader teams out there as far as SM and ASM? My wife was a GSer for about
the same time (if not more than) I was in Boy Scouts (thats how we met).
Since we have only one child, I am sure she wants to do this with me but
has not asked. If anyone can offer any input, I would really appreciate it.
Thanks for the bandwidth!
