Over my 30 years as a Scouter and Venturer Advisor, I have seen many changes to the organization and how the programs run. The one constant has been the strength and quality of the youth and volunteers that choose scouting. We have amazing youth who willingly take on leadership roles, reach out to help fellow youth, scouters, neighbors and the community. They strive to achieve, fellowship and to learn. Like many of you, it has been a privilege to watch the youth that you once worked with, become scouters, and parents and parents of scouts.

I look forward to meeting with may of you in the coming year as we work toegether to help uor youth and volunteers smile, laugh and learn as we challenge our current ability and open our minds to the possibilities. It starts with Scouts!

Let the Adventures Begin!
