Hi Den 1,
My name is Jerry and I'm a Cub Roundtable Commissioner from Connecticut. I've
been involved with Scouting for almost 20 years, both as an youth and as an
adult leader. I was in Cub Scouts way back in the 60's and a Boy Scout until
I was eighteen. My son was a Cub Scout back in the 80's.
I have served in Scouting as a Den Leader, Webelos Leader, Assistant
Cubmaster, Cubmaster, Tiger Organizer and Assistant Scoutmaster. Besides
being a Roundtable Commissioner, I serve on the Nutmeg District committee as
Cub Leader Training Chairman and on the Connecticut Rivers Council Training
Committee. I enjoyed Scouting as a youth and now as an "older" youth.
I have been married for the last 16 years and have two teenagers, Michael and
Karen. They both attend Conard High School here in West Hartford. Michael
runs on both the Indoor and Outdoor Track teams - 100 meter and 200 meter
dashes. Karen was the top scorer on the Freshman Field Hockey team and is on
the Gymnastics Team. I am a student also, when I'm not doing Scouting. I
attend Trinity College in Hartford. I am a Junior, but it will be a while
before I graduate, because I only go part time. Right now, it looks like I'll
graduate from College in the year 2001.
I work all my adult life with computers and have held almost every job. I
started as a keypunch operator in the Marines and ended up an computer
operator. I was a programmer/analyst for years, and even Operations Manager.
Now I am an Help Desk Analyst, which means I get to help other people with
their computer problems. It is fitting, I must admit: I get to really 'help
other people at all times'.
I have a collection of about 70 CSPs. Those are the colorful Council Strips
you wear on the left sleeve of your uniform. I collect them and others from
around the world. I have patches from Canada, England, Germany, Switzerland,
and Australia, all traded with good people like yourselves that I have met by
communicating on the computer. If you like, I could trade CSP's with you. If
you are interested let me know.
Take care, and happy Scouting,
