My first time was with a friend with whom I had been in Scouting for 6
years. We were in our twenties. He was SM for a Troop in need of an adult to continue. As
a Scout I had promised that I would try to repay all that was given to me by the adult
Leaders in my Troop because I knew their direction and kindness would have a profound
affect on my life. This was my first chance to keep that promise. Later, as a parent, I
wanted my children to experience Scouting - sure that it would have positive affects,
challenge them, and expose them to new things. -5yr Leader, Eagle Scout
I love the program - R.J - 5 yr., Eagle Scout

My son & husband were in Scouting. After moving to a new area and
attending School Night to sign up my son, I found out that the school did not have a Pack.
My husband was out of town, so I told the man in charge that my husband would be the CM as
he had been an Assistant in the Pack before. He told me the only way that he would be the
CM is if I would get involved. I had no other choice because my son really wanted to be in
Scouts. -Carolyn Lare - 4 yr.
