Volume 4 Issue 11
June 1998

One of the greatest honors I get to do as a scouter is Friends of Scouting presentations. Yes, I love doing them. I welcome the opportunity to give scouting families the chance to enroll in Friends of Scouting. I enjoy doing FOS because after doing a presentation I sit through the pack or troop meeting and get to see scouting in action. Every pack and troop has it's own character. Seeing our youth doing openings and closings and all else that is involved, always realizing how the adult leadership makes it possible overwhelms me. Although I go to these meetings as a FOS presenter to raise funds for this campaign that isn't where I find satisfaction. My satisfaction comes from seeing scouting in action. I want to thank all the Leaders who work so hard to make scouting possible.

Most months, I include a training tip with an excerpt taken directly from the Cub Scout Leader Book. There are other BSA publications that I FORGET to tell everyone about. A great book is the Cub Scout Leader How-to Book. Recently, I have gotten a Pow-wow book that includes how to use BSA publications along with their Pow-wow book. Thanks KH! For this theme there are suggestions on how to do a Raingutter Regatta, Pirate Picnic, Water Carnival, and a Fishing Derby in the How-To Book. The Cub Scout Leader How-to Book is available at your Scout Shop as is The Cub Scout Leader Book.

Also as I go along each month doing the Bugle I realize there are things I miss. I don't think I have ever included an Arrow of Light Ceremony. This month I have. Sorry it is so late.

Since Scouting is a year-round program I will be doing a July issue of Baloo's Bugle. Thank you for the many many emails y'all have sent with the nice thoughts throughout this past scouting year. Your kind words mean a lot to me. :)
