I think this message is WONDERFUL! It is so nice to hear about
kids and adults alike that are proud of what and who they are!
My hat is off to you for promoting such a positive attitude with
I would be extremely interested in some of the activities that
you have done to work on 'Pride in Scouting'. My troop has been
working on the Contemporary Issues, Girls Are Great, but I don't
feel that we are accomplishing the goals. I am still getting
comments like "it's embarrassing" and "do I have to".
Could you please share some of your projects and ideas? Thank
you so much!
