Meyers Scout Museum Open free to the public by appointment, tours, talks and displays for units within local area


Busy making rewards for Gerber. Make a hiking stick for Premier Campsite Awards.


Getting some patches ready for Outing For Scouting. Setting up a display and a trading session. Giving a bunch of patches to scouts to get them started trading. Should be a lot of fun.


Busy getting ready for Scouts and Leaders at Gerber Scout Reservation. Have tents up and Tryon ready for commissioners. Took some extra manuals up to give away to leaders. Also plan on a small patch display. Sunday is the big day when the first session arrives!


Ready for Gerber Scout Reservation and an awesome camping season. Will be the Reservation Commissioner this year. Big job and new to it. Friend Joe there to help when needed. Really excited to begin on Wednesday. 😀


Busy cleaning Tryon Lodge at Gerber Scout Reservation. Getting ready for Scouts, leaders and commissioners. Going to be a busy summer at camp. This is my first year as Reservation Commissioner. Good thing my friend Joe is there to help me along. Will be an awesome camp season.


Getting ready to go north in a couple weeks. Need to get ready for commissionership at Gerber Scout Reservation. Also have an important COH soon after returning home. Plus two displays to do.


Received a really nice Get Well card from Troop 147, signed by lots of scouts and leaders that I have had experience with over the years. Really great of them to remember me.


Fun with Troop 39 making rope for the troop to use on their campouts.


Heading over to Troop 39 to do some rope making tonight. Fun and active group of scouts.


One more FOS patch for my traveling display, only three to go. Have a complete set minus Referent for the museum.


Round Table tomorrow, then Coffee with Comm on Saturday morning and next week off to Mackinaw. Hope to see you at one or all!


Ready for annual 9/11 Salute at the Ford Museum. Going to help out with the salute and see lots of my brothers in scouting. Every SCOUT should make an effort to participate! Public invited to participate also! See all of you there.


Heading back to Gerber for OA Conclave. Going to be a great time for everyone!


Feeling happy but also sad, this is the last week at Gerber Scout Reservation summer camp. Will miss all the scouts, leaders and especially staff. This has been an awesome experience and would recommend working staff to any Scout young or old! Hope to be invited back next year.


Cleaning and organizing some of my scout stuff. If any scouters out there need a replacement Handbook from their era either cub or boy scout - I will replace free! Also have old Scoutmaster handbooks and more. Glad to give to a new scout home! Contact me and we can get you all set.


Great visit with Pack 3048. Lots of wonderful Cub Scouts, leaders and parents.


Nice additions to the museum today from adults in troop 147 in Holland. Getting ready to have the cub scouts and parents from pack 3048 visit the museum. These donations will help.


Had some nice items from Philmont and Woodbadge given to the museum from Paul, an older scouter from Ohio. So items went from Ohio to New Mexico and then back to Michigan. Thanks Paul!


Reading the local paper here in Deming, NM and found an article about the National Boy Scout Museum. The museum is located in Irving Texas but will be moving to NM next year. It is actually moving to Philmont! I can then take a day trip and visit next year.


Picked up four patches to help fill my collections.


Thanks to son Scott for putting on a scouting display for Grandville Veteran's Post. Looks like a great time for youngsters from the Grandville schools.


Nice day, picked up three patches for my museum display. Found 3 Michigan CSP's I needed. Like to show csp's from MI to visitors.


Working on Outing for Scouting. If you have not signed up, do so or miss a superior event!


Heading to the 9/11 event tomorrow morning. Probably spend most of the day at the salute. Hope for great weather.


Great visit to the museum by a local brother and sister checking out the OA display with their donation.


Resting at home this week then off to Gerber Scout Camp for the month of July. Picked up a few patches at Gerber to add to display and plan to have a Great time returning on Sunday.


Saturday was my first Coffee with the Commissioner in Jenison. Had a good time even if no current scouters visited. I had coffee with two former scouters and had a wonderful time.


Great week at the museum, had two visits and really enjoyed both. One visitor was really interesting because his mother designed many of the Grand Valley Council patches. He plans to return and bring his brother and others to see the museum.


Getting packed this week and heading home to Michigan from NM.
Scheduled 4 weeks at Gerber Scout Reservation as a commissioner.


Talked with another scouter today at the gas station. He was from the other side of the state (MI) and staying in Deming. A few years younger than I but had lots of scout stories to share. Gave him my card and he plans to visit sometime this summer.


Picked up a uniform and some patches for the museum. More to add to display.


Really shown what scouting is all about. I helped three different RVers this week. I was just doing a good deed but had to explain. They each couldn't believe that I would not take payment. Told them I was a scout and explained scouting to them and explained all scouts know about doing good deeds.


Getting 2 new CSPs and 2 other patches to add to my collections.


Finished with lots of emails to units as ADC. Received lots of replies. Recharters about complete, YEA!


Display tomorrow for a family of scouters!


Getting ready for display at Kick Off. Need to do some ironing of old uniforms.
