Many thanks to those who sent congratulatory messages for the kickoff of
Will Rogers Council's 50th anniversary celebration. I ended up two short
of the 50 I hoped for but Mike Walton made up for it by sending a three
page letter. Anyway, the kickoff went well (it was part of the regular
executive board meeting) and we are looking forward to a great year.
One of the highlights of the meeting for me was getting to meet our council's
first Scout Executive - Ray Matoy. He is the author of "Thunderbird Tracks:
Early History of the Will Rogers Council." He's long since retired but
was able to pay us a visit and help cut the cake.
We've already got a lot of things planned for the coming year including
a special CSP and series of activity patches. But, I got to wondering
what things other councils have done for their 50th anniversaries. Please
let us know.
