Position of Responsibility
Thu, 3 Jun 1999 18:13:03 -0500
Hi, I am a Star Scout and I have a problem. My Mom is on the list and
she is letting me write for suggestions. I have worked really hard and
made Star Scout 2 weeks ago in time to go work at Day Camp and get my
Service Hours taken care of for Life. I have no problems with my merit
badges, just need 3 Eagle required badges. I have been a Den Chief for 2
years with my Mom's Pack, one year with a Bear Den and one with a
Webelos Den, I have the Den Leader Service Award, too. I would like to
do something else as a position of responsibility. I tried talking to my
Scoutmaster (My Dad is the Assistant Scoutmaster) and asked about Asst
Sr Patrol Leader since the Sr Patrol Leader shows up rarely. The
Scoutmaster said the Sr Patrol Leader and everyone else in the Troop has
to be there before he will hold an election. I don't think there has
been a meeting in the past 2 years that everyone has attended. I don't
want to be a Den Chief any more and I can't give it the time the
position deserves when the Dens meet with after school activities .
Anyway there are other Scouts who want to be Den Chiefs and should get
the chance, Our Pack is small and doesn't need more than 4 right now.
Are there any suggestions on what I should do?
