David asks some good questions about the Garfield and
Cub Scouting connection. This has been previously discussed
here. For the "full" story, check the latest edition of
Basically, Jim Davis was very impressed after attending
an Eagle Court of Honor and wanted to help promote
Scouting. A pro here in Crossroads of America Council
had previously been the mayor of the town where Paws,
Inc. is located. They talked and Jim DONATED time
and licenses to our local recruiting campaign. The results
were great and now it's become a national campaign.
That's HOW it came about. The price was right and the results
are hard to argue with. But it still may be worth while to reflect
on the objections that David and others have made.
