I would like to acknowledge the effort put into getting the GSUSA
clip-art on-line. I was able to incorporate it into the program
for our Daisy troop's end-of-year program and Brownie Bridging
ceremony (I'm now a Brownie Dad, not a Daisy Dad). My wife, who
is the least computer literate in the house, was impressed with
what was available.
For those who are unfamiliar with this resource, check it out.
Just send the message "index scouts-l" to the listserv to get
the index and get started. I will be digitizing some more GSUSA
insignia for inclusion and will contact the appropriate person when ready.
To update you on our continuing saga of the Brownie Troop, my wife
now has two other leaders and six girls lined up for the new troop
and she is still out there recruiting. It looks like it will
fly. We are becoming more disturbed with some of the Council's
fundraising practices though. The latest is that for the annual council
dinner they offered a discounted early sign-up price that was
advertised as being subsidized by the *Parent Support* contributions.
With it now being known that this is where these contributions
are going to (in addition to the worthy activities) it is making
it harder for the troops to get parents to contribute. We have
seen it on our troop.
Enough soap box. Thanks again.
