Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Introductions
Fri, 26 Feb 1999 03:39:18 -0500
My name is Chris Finnegan, and I recently joined the Scouts-L list.
I'm Cubmaster for Cub Pack 199 Hilltown, Bucks County, PA. I've been
involved as an adult leader for 4 years and I'm having a ball.
My son, Geoff will be crossing over to a Troop this month and I am very
proud of him. I plan on being active in his troop, and will remain CM in
the Pack for at least another year. I've begun to explore advanced
training options to become more involved in District and Council
Training. Of particular interest to me are the Webelos years and the
importance of maintaining the drive and desire of these boys to stay in
Scouting and fend off peer pressure once they arrive in a Troop. All too
often we in Cubs, are terribly disappointed when we see one of "our"
boys drop out of Boy Scouting once they leave us. We'll be placing
emphasis on the Bear Dens this year to begin reinforcing the concept of
remaining in Scouting for the long haul. I'd appreciate any suggestions
any of you may have.
