Hello fellow Scout-l members,
My name is Jackie Rider. My son just joined Pack 495 of the Baltimore
Area Council, National Pike District in Maryland as a Tiger scout.
I found this list while surfing the beautiful and informative BSA
My son got the scouting bug from hearing me talk of my fun Junior
Girl Scout days in Troop 2156 Nations Capital Council or District (?).
I don't remember my brownie troop number.
He was very interested in the badges I earned and how I earned
them. The stories of the camping trips I attended have been retold
at bedtime for many years.
My girl scout memorabilia is the only thing I've kept from my
childhood. I love looking thru my GS book--the way the worn pages feel,
the smell. I was lucky to have happy experiences. Even luckier
to have told my mother before she passed away that that was the BEST
thing she could have done for me. (My parents were VERY uninvolved in
my extra circular activites.)
I've reread the Scout Laws. Now I know where my moral code must have
My regret is that I didn't continue with something that made me feel
so good. You can take the girl out of scouts, but you can't take
the scout out of the girl.
So, now it's my son's turn! He's excited about being a scout, we're
excited about him being a scout.
It will be a new experience for my husband who didn't have an
opportunity to be a scout!
If anyone from Pack 495 is listening and would like to contact me
at the email address enclosed, I'd be happy to hear from you.
My main reason for joining the list is to get ideas for Tiger
meetings and enrich my son's experience as a scout.
I'm in the process of going thru the archives for this information.
If anyone knows of specific archives, websites, or another list
pertaining to Tiger scouts, please feel free to email me at the
enclosed email address.
Sincerely, Jackie Rider
P.S. This will be the first and last time my signoff will appear.
