Future leaders

Cubmaster Ted Daley and his co-pack leader, Scott, lead Den 4 of Pack 446 in Eagan. These cub scouts and boys from three other dens of their pack built and raced this Soapbox Derby car. Scouting builds future kids of character and community leaders.

Ted, holding up the pack flag, is an Eaganite running for a District 38 seat of the Minnesota Senate. A retired Army Lieutenant Colonel and self-employed CPA, he's a big-hearted, community minded leader.

  4. Din blog er en af mange eksempler på, hvordan I in the USA opmuntrer positive bidrag til hverdagens hjælpere i offentlige samt fritidsjob. Imponerende, I must say, men selvfølgelig ved jeg godt, at der er grupper af personer, som aldrig får chancen for visse af disse fællesskaber :(
    Rotary i Danmark er stadig en ret aktiv gruppe, har "plads" i mange større byer, men de store bidragsydere socialt/hyldestmæssigt er Lions samt "ringenes hemmelige klub"... Men at hylde lærere/pædagoger/politifolk/fritidsmedarbejdere solo, nixen-bixen, sådan gør vi det ikke i Danmark!!

  5. «Louis» is happy to see you touting the benefits of Scouting. Out here on the "left coast", the Scouts are under constant assault by the political left.
    «Louis» will stop right there. He's taking a day off from political rants today...

  6. What a joy to see life being able to enjoy such happiness, especially building soapbox cars - something I always dreamed of. Please have a nice Saturday.
