For many, many years the Saganaw and Nutmeg Districts (first Fairfield
County Council, then Connecticut Yankee Council) held their round table
meetings jointly. For most of the time, each district had a time for
district announcements before the split by age (Cubs/Boys) the last year
ist was only the age split.
All this ended, however, on January 1, 2000 when the two districts merged
into one new district, the Pomperaug District. (The name of the former
council which had had most of that territory until the council mergers of
the mid 1970s.)
In general, it worked well. Occasional personality clashes, but hey, this
is real life!
