Introduction to the list
After participating in the Jambo list for almost a year I was having
serious Scouting email hunger pains. After peeking at some of the
threads in the archives here, I decided to join your list for my daily
Scouting email ration. I just subscribed using the Listserv function.
I have been an active Scout leader for 8 years now. Starting as a
Cubmaster and now a Scoutmaster (following by son as he progressed).
I find the program great for me personaly. It gives me great
satisifaction watching the Scouts grow from unfocused small boys to
responsible young men - and feeling that I had something to do with the
When I joined (was drafted into) the 40+ year old scouting program at
our church - it was going down - no registered boys or adults in the
Cubs or the Boy Scouts.
A small group of new adults restarted the program, and now, just 8 years
later, we have over 100 active boys and adults in the program.
I feel that the Scouting program is very valuable because it is one of
the few programs that can cut across all the layers of our society and
teach boys what they realy need to know.
Keep up the great work.
