Thank you. I’ve been wondering for some time. As I remember the local troop was far away from where I lived and the boys in the troop all lived in that area.
Distance makes it more difficult to participate in any organized activity like this. Scouting tends to be a family-oriented activity, and there can be a lot of connections among the youth and their families - school, neighborhood, worship communities, sports, etc. I’ll really miss our Scouting family when our boys finish and move on to college. We have spent a lot of time with some of these youngsters and their families over the years, and it’s a part of our lives that I’ll always treasure.
