Hello fellow L-ers,
Thanks Steve for the heads-up on that article.
I think ya'll find several Cubmaster and Scoutmaster
minutes in that one.
Like we always say, "Actions have consequences".
Several examples of that also.
Steve's post also stated :
<<"All across the country, Scouting is prospering and growing.
Virtually every council has had healthy growth in both youth
members and adult volunteers. Every council is enjoying
improved financial support, to the extent that many are making
capital improvements in their camps and council service centers
for the first time in years. Many councils are now able to
begin building endowments or add to existing ones that will
enhance programs for years to come," explained Robert M. Gates,
president of the National Eagle Scout Association.>>
I don't know about the rest of you but, this certainly is NOT
the situation in Twin Rivers Council in upstate New York. It
also is not my understanding of the numbers situation in the rest
of the country. I wonder who Mr. Gates is trying to convince?
Another day... another adventure....
Have a great Scouting day,
