Saw this in my newsfeed yesterday: http://www.bnd.com/n...e104537296.html
A few interesting points in the article caught my attention:
- First, they say that it was the United Way that suggested the merger. In our area, the United Way won't give any money to the BSA, so they must have a lot more influence with Scouting in St. Louis than they do up here.
- They also say no lay offs, but that they'll save $400K... wonder how that works. Must be by not back filling open reqs?
- They plan to keep three OA lodges.
- They feel they'll have too many camp properties. So a few more BSA camps will bite the dust.
Good luck to all of our Scouting brothers and sisters in these two Councils. Hopefully it isn't your favorite camp that ends up on the chopping block.
Looks like it's now a done deal:
