Hello fellow Scouters,
We live in a society that is increasingly moving indoors. Kids rarely play outside all day (unless it’s some organized “play time”). And families seem be spending less time together in the outdoors, doing activities like camping.
And although our schools seem to be teaching our children better than they did when I was a student, they don’t seem to be developing leadership traits. Do our high schools and colleges spend time developing the next generation of leaders for our country and for our companies?
Instead of belonging to an outdated “old school” organization, we are part of a youth organization that is even more vital and necessary than it has ever been. And after a couple of decades of “out of focus” leadership, it appears that the current BSA leadership knows what a great program has and what to do to make this organization even more successful.
The times in which we live have made me really proud to be apart of the Boy Scouts of America. So with much thanks I wish a happy 100th birthday to the Boy Scouts of America! And of course, happy 80th birthday to the Cub Scout program. Scouting is fundamentally good for a boy, and I thank you for what you do for our sons!
