Drew McLuckie here. I commandeered the computer for a moment
from Pat, the Scoutmaster of out Troop, to ask a question of the list.
PLEASE DO NOT POST REPLIES TO SCOUTS-L, OR THIS MAILBOX.
PLEASE POST ALL REPLIES TO: firstname.lastname@example.org , as that is
my e-mail address.
I am an Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 123, in Cradle of Liberty Council.
( Philadelphia, PA area ). I am also a Masonic Lodge officer, who will
be working to help develop a program for the Lodge over the next 3 years.
What I am interested in is having both groups benefit.....
I had thought about a service project ( painting or somesuch ) that the
could do ( or even an Eagle project ), in return for either a monetary
or use of space for special events ( like using our large dining hall for
Court of Honor, etc. ).
Let me be very clear here...... we are NOT looking to sponsor the Troop-
the Lodge is a 15 minute drive from where the Troop meets. I also
want to be careful not to mingle Troop and DeMolay ( for those who are
not Masons, DeMolay is a Masonic youth group for boys aged 13-21 ),
so as not to have any problems with one group attracting kids from the
I think that there can be a great benefit to both sides here..... any
on how this might work? Anyone doing the same out there?
again, please post replies to my private address: email@example.com
