I posted enough now, and I have not introduced myself. My apologies...
Been a CM for a year now in an Upper Midwest Pack, we are small, but growing. I am an Eagle Scout, and this is my way of giving back to a program that was very good to me.
Have 2 boys, 2 girls. Oldest boy is a Wolf, youngest is a Lion. Both love scouting. Mama came into this with some trepidation, but I changed that mind. She enjoys seeing her sons happy and knows that overall this program is excellent for young boys and men.
Took a pack that would probably have folded, and added new program elements, Lions, and community activities, and WAY more outdoor events. I could not let our small village pack (and by extension, eventually the troop) wither into extinction. Its been a lot of work, but I have enjoyed every minute of it.
