Working every weekend at Gerber getting ready for the camping season. Have Tryon Lodge cleaned, now taking up items for training and some display items. Also taking COFFEE and tea to get commissioners and leaders started for the day. Lots to do in the next few weeks.

Any adult leaders interested in helping out- we have slots open for commissioners. Lots of fun and service to our camp and the scouts attending it. We provide food and sleeping locations. If interested, contact me for information.

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.

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.

Back from Outing For Scouting and a great weekend. Finished up all my tasks and delivered my last item. If you didn't attend you missed an event that is going to be hard to beat! Really tired but a good tired and ready for more scouting. Check out Outing for Scouting and see some of what you missed.

09/30/2016

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

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.

05/15/2016

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.

04/19/2016

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

04/08/2016

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.

03/08/2016

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

03/02/2016

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.
