I'm new to the list, so I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Pete
Gerlach, and I'm Scoutmaster of Troop 49 in Lemont, IL (until Dec. 31, when I
go back to ASM).
We're part of the Tall Grass District of the Des Plaines Valley Council
(western suburbs of Chicago). I have two sons in the Troop, a 15 year-old on
the verge of Eagle & a 12 year-old Star. My wife, Florence, is an ASM. Both
she and the 15 yr-old did their Ordeal this past summer. I did my Ordeal in
1972, & Brotherhood in '73, in Netawatamas 424. We are currently in
Pachsegink 246. I recieved my Eagle in 1974. Over the years, with some
breaks & overlaps, I have been: Cub Scout, 3 yrs; Boy Scout, 7 yrs; Explorer,
4 yrs; Assoc. Advisor, 2 yrs; Tiger Cub Partner, 2 yrs; Asst. Cubmaster, 1
yr; Webelos Leader, 2 yrs; Asst. Webelos Leader, 1 yr; Den Leader Coach, 3
yrs; Asst. Scoutmaster, 1 1/2 yrs; Scoutmaster, 3 yrs. Florence & I are both
Woodbadge trained (C-5-97 -I'm an Eagle, she's an Antelope) & currently
working our tickets if we can.
Thanks for letting me pull up a log.
