Ok,..... you had fun because adults cared to help the youth with Scouts. So what Scout Council/District/Troop/Pack are you working with now to repay the favor?

You can't know what this person has been doing with his life since the Scouts. I was in Girl Scouts and have fond memories of those experiences...but I never felt I owed the scouting program any parcticular debt of service. My kids were not inclined to participate in scouting. My service work with children is therefore in different fields...mainly with my church, but also with local charitable concerns and with the schools my kids attend. Let others give back to the Scouts. I'm giving back to my community in other ways they might not. That seems fair. And judging by the number of boxes of cookies still in my freezer, I'd say I'm repaying my debt to the Girl Scouts with interest!

I'm very sorry to hear of this accident....I hope the survivors have a complete recovery.
