Okay boy and girls: If you were in Sister Sarah's English class she would
have to whack some of your hands with her ruler for mis-reading (or not
reading completely) my post regarding Silver Beavers and other Scouter
Yes folk I did say:
>As a SM I often jokingly remark that award winners obviously aren't
spending enough time with the boys..........
Did we all see the word *JOKINGLY* this time?
In the very next line (the one some of you were too busy hitting your reply
button to read:
>But, when I reflect upon the intangible rewards I receive practically on a
daily basis from the boys, I realize that without the >support and hard work
in troop,district and council level, by all of those not privileged to >be
where I am, I would have >much less of a program to offer.
Then with all the rhetorical flourish I could muster (be proud Sister Sarah)
I finished with:
>One of the things I tell parents at FOS time, is that however much they
>think that my skills with their kids and our troop are the only things
>find worthy of support, it is the countless dedicated individuals behind
>scenes that make possible the stage upon which I meet their kids and help
Did we all get that this time? In short SM Bob thinks that any recognition
we can provide all the people who make possible the thing that fills my life
with such joy and fulfillment should be done.
Remember SM Bob votes YES for Siler Beavers (they also make one heck of a
