Bob.... Boy oh Boy the things that people volunteer for!! ;) My
hat is off to you! Care to tell us how you get that urine?
(No... really I don't want to know)
Really though.... I was involved with 4H as a child and really
loved it. I agree that 4H teaches some different things than
Scouting does, but they BOTH teach leadership skills. I only
wish that in our small town that kids were encouraged to find
time for both 4H and scouting instead of one or the other.
