Scouts-L Mail Archive for November of 1998: Invitation from Scouts NewEngland
Invitation from Scouts NewEngland
Tue, 10 Nov 1998 10:34:59 -0500
I'd like to invite all New England BSA Scouts and Scouters from
the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire,
Rhode Island and Vermont, to join our regional Scouting group
called "Scouts NewEngland" (SNE).
We offer a FREE daily (five-day-a-week) Scouting E-mail News
and Discussion Group and a Web Site full of Regional Scouting
Scouts NewEngland works very similar to SCOUTS-L, or any other
Scouting E-mail groups that you may belong to or heard of,
except we're a group dedicated to the New England region.
I started the SNE E-mail group in June 1997. Followed by the SNE
Web site which went online in December 1997. The concept of SNE
and a regional Scouting resource was to provide opportunities for
members of BSA throughout New England to interact with each other
on a personal, unit and Council level. It offers a place to
compare notes on your unit and Council program, to discuss problems
and find solutions. You can learn about and make announcements of
Scouting events and Leader training sessions, you can make contacts
with Scouters all over New England, and you can ask questions and
find answers, or simply talk about anything Scouting related.
Since December 15, 1997, to today (11-10-98) our Web site has had
11,319 visitors. That comes out to more than 1000 visitors a month!
Very impressive for a Scouting web site. Many business would envy
that kind of Web site traffic. Visit our SNE Web site at:
