Hello it is ptsteve again,Just got back from our Christmas Party and awarding my Webelos 2's their Arrow of Light award and patch. Had each Scout bring their parents forward to receive the parents pin when they received their patch. Many of the parents came up to me after the ceremony and said thanks for being their son's Den Leader. I managed to get through it all without tears, but now it is hard not...[More]

The Boy Scouts of Troop 68 perform the skit they call "I Want To Marry The Princess" in which a poor peasant wishes to marry a princess. It may start out slow but wait until it really gets going....[More]

This past weekend, I attended a wedding where a young woman I’ve known since she was in middle school married a young man I know not at all. As I sat watching the familiar rituals and listening to the familiar words, I wondered about the groom’s background and character, about what he does for a living, about how the two of them met, about what they have in common. Some of those questions were...[More]

When I was a young Scout, in my first Troop, still unable to tie any knot I didn't learn in Webelos, I went on a campout. Turns out on this outing we made a huge tower out of poles and rope. By end of the outing I was hooked and over the years became a geek of all things rope. I still remember the joy of helping build that tower, climbing the tower, helping erect...[More]

I received an email the other day from a list subscriber who wondered about the propriety of recognizing two brothers at the same court of honor. My answer, of course, was yes. Doing so would maximize attendance and simplify attendance for out-of-town relatives.There was a kicker, however. One brother is still in the troop, while the other is over 18 and hadn’t previously had a court of honor (because he originally didn’t want one).So how...[More]

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the National Order of the Arrow Conference and report on the array of Eagle Scout-related activities that were part of this year’s event. (You can read my reporting at http://noac.nesa.org.) As I walked around the Michigan State University campus, I was struck by how many attendees were wearing both OA sashes and Eagle Scout badges.Of course, it’s no surprise that so many members of Scouting’s national honor...[More]

I remember my first Christmas party with Grandma. I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her on the day my big sister dropped the bomb: "There is no Santa Claus," she jeered. "Even dummies know that!"My grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the...[More]

The old saying about things being hotter than noon on the Fourth of July is taking on new meaning this summer as much of the country swelters under miserable conditions. Of course, many Scout camps seem to be specifically sited to catch the most afternoon sun possible while repelling any cool northerly breezes (at least that’s the way it can feel).While we can’t do much to make camp cooler, we can take steps to...[More]
