As we prepare to welcome new scouts to our troop, please take some time to think about the scout oath and the scout law. We are role models for these younger scouts and need to live out these ideas...helpful, courteous, kind. Try to remember how it felt the first time you walked into that crowded, crazy room and saw all those older guys. I know it was intimidating to me. Talk to them, include them, initiate some interaction with them. As they learn our ways, they too will discover how much fun it is to joke and tease among all these new friends they have made. Just some food for thought.
