Recently I received an email from Akela, (Mike Wright) the Cub Leader of the 1st Mount Waverley. They have 27 invested scouts ages of 7 -11, both boys and girls, (just east of Melbourne), Victoria, Australia. G'Day to y'all and we will be seeing the beauty of your country during the Olympics. And remember "Do your Best always". Thanks Janyce, (justjan) for being an international publicity chair for Baloo's Bugle and letting Akela (Mike) know about Baloo's Bugle.
