Greetings. I hope I'm doing this right:)
I joined a few weeks back but am just now really taking the time to intro.
myself. My name is John H. Smith and I am Scoutmaster of Troop 402 at the
Methodist Church in Wadsworth, Ohio, Great Trail Council, Chippewa District.
I am an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the OA. Past program director
of Camp Avery Hand in Mansfield, Ohio. That is where I met my wife. She was
hired as head cook. We were married that same December. She just gave birth
to our 5th son on March 11, 2000. My two oldest are scouts and my third will
join in January when he turns 11. I also have a daughter (total=6 children).
My (paying) occupation is as a Police Sergeant for a suburb of Cleveland,
Ohio. I just started as Scoutmaster last year after not being involved for
about 10 years but I am enjoying it. I did miss it. I just have to be careful
to balance scouting with family. ( We still have three in diapers) Well,
that's enough I guess. I have been enjoying gleaning from your wisdom and it
has been helping. I feel like I still have so much to learn. This is an
awesome responsibility we all have for the future of this country. God help
Yours in Scouting,
John H. Smith
