How could we make Scouting better?Maybe what I would ask is “Do you feel that Scouting has lost its directions, its way in worrying about how the community perceives it and how to get more youth to join that...[More]

This tip is thanks to Mark Ray from http://www.eaglebook.comPlaces are important to most of us.

This tip is thanks to Mark Ray from http://www.eaglebook.comWhile an Eagle court of honor is a troop function, a large part of the audience is usually made up of the honoree’s family and friends.
