I’ve had the pleasure of working with the area Scouts for 25 years. Greenville’s Troop 122 had been dormant for many years and we revised it back in the early 1990’s. I enjoyed being an active Scoutmaster for many years. Although I’m no longer involved as much, I’m still a unit commissioner and get to be active mentoring Eagle candidates. Xavier Guay has developed a trail system on conservation land and asked me to build a simple kiosk for maps and animal information etc.

Those kiosks are great information scources, I have cross country skied up to a couple of them when I was
too damn busy having fun to worry about where I was (that’s the reason for the map & compass in my
fanny pack) only to discover I was a few miles over from where I thought I was. Come to think of it, the
same darn thing happened deer hunting with the youngest before he went to Iraq, oh well it was fun & we
had a good hike. I was Scoutmaster, silver lining on badge & all for a while, thank you for helping the scouts
and sharing the fun.

Scouting has been a huge part of my life. It’s good to see that it’s not dead everywhere.

Scouting gave life to my relationship with my (now 21 year old) son. When other parents were pulling their hair out about what was going on with their teenagers, he and I were together on campouts, canoe trips, etc. He earned his Eagle Scout award in 2008, and is becoming a fine young man. (I still “suffered” hair loss, but mine came out on its own.)

Congratulations to Xavier on his leadership project and, hopefully, completing his Eagle requirements and Board of Review. Congratulations to you, Bernie, for your ongoing service to an organization that still teaches integrity hands-on.

Great job. I always like it best when Scouts do conservation type Eagle projects because so many people benifit from it.
