I am a new subscriber and also a new user of the Net. I am an Assistant Leader
with the 31B Beavers in London, Ontario, Canada. My husband has been involved
with this pack for 3 yrs. and is presently the Contact Scouter. I have been
involved from Sept./94 when we had a shortage of leaders and a shortage of
participants. We had 2 Beavers that returned from last year (one was my son),
so we had to build up this Beaver pack from scratch. As well, all of the
leaders seemed to have disappeared from last year, leaving just my husband.
Initially I said I would help until he found some leaders (which hasn't been
the case). Although I am new to Scouts Canada, I am involved with the Girl
Guides of Canada as both a Brownie and Guide leader (we have leader problems
there too!). Outside of Scouts and Guides - if that's possible :-) -- I enjoy
camping, canoeing, downhill skiing and lots of other volunteer activites. We
just got an IBM Aptiva for the holidays, which really got me going on the Net.
I look forward to some great discussions and ideas.

P.S. Our family is heavily involved in the movement. Our 3 daughters are
Pathfinder, Guide and Brownie and our son is in his last year of Beavers.
Guess what I'll be doing next year!!
