We  had a “Threefor” , so to speak, as three representatives of the Boy Scouts’ described the regional and local programs, and facts of interest about them and the organization.   Things are changing (now girls have more options) and are the same (quality, growth experiences for young people).  In addition to an interesting, well-organized presentation, part for fun entailed audience participation --Rotarians had a chance to work on our Weeblos Engineering Merit Badge !   As the photo might suggest, some of us would earn the badge later than sooner : )    To see details of the presentation and the good Scouting is doing (and to see the activity instruction sheet) click "Read more"
Rotarian Wes Weems (Field Director for the North Service Area) introduced a previous visitor, Emily Constantinou (District Executive for the North Woods District), and relative newcomer to our area but long-time scouter, Tim Bouchard (Deputy Scout Executive and COO for the greater Chicago area Pathway to Adventure Scout Council).  Through slides (see below) and commentary, they described the structure, background, local units, accomplishments and some thoughts about the future.  And if you're inclined to try your hand at the Weeblow project, scroll to the bottom.of this page.
