Dear Bill and all the rest:
As many times as this has gone around, you would
Do the Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts all fall under
Are we not all on the same boat?....the same mission?
Do Packs not typically FEED the troops and do Troops
not offer a program for the next level of SCOUTING?
Why not Split it up even more!!!!! Why not just have
a youth group that only accepts 6 year old boys....Why
tie our shoes in the morning?
While I am at it....Why talk to each other! Why grow
in numbers...Why not stay home and eat pop corn?
My most valued asset in Scouting is the relationships
that I go out of my way to influence: by talking
Scouting to ALL AGES! It starts with the youngest
sibling of any Scout; the youngest child of any
The greatest of feelings has come to me as I walking
into a tiger Cub Meeting, knowing that some of these
little guys already know me: "Look, its the
Scoutmaster.....can we go camping too?"
Thats why its one Program.....BSA!
Please, open your hearts and minds. the task does not
stop at your child....your camp fee....your issue of
Boys' Life.....or the day that your son Crosses Over!
Invest in all levels of the program as a way of
insuring that it continues!
Remember, not every comment is intended for everyone,
but Scouting is!!!!!!!!
Keep Scouting Fun!
