Here's My Story, Please Share Yours

Dear Editor,

I have the honor of serving as Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America, Hoosier Trails Council, serving 18 counties throughout South Central Indiana, including Owen County. For many years, the staff and volunteers of this council have provided area families a very effective and low-cost character-building program for their children founded upon traditional, fun activities, and teaching worthwhile life skills. Scouting helps to make our towns and cities good places to live and raise a family. People often share stories with me of the wonderful service Scouts and Scouters in their town have provided.

The year 2010 will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. In recognition of this milestone, we have created a National Hall of Leadership. Its purpose is to give recipients of an extraordinary good deed by a Scout or Scouter a way to thank and honor them - and to encourage others to follow in their footsteps!

If you, or someone you know, has been the recipient of such a good deed from a Scout - young or old, I want to give you the opportunity to reciprocate with a good deed of your own.

Share your story by visiting the Hoosier Trails Council website, and click on the nomination link on the home page (www.hoosiertrailsbsa. org). Nominations will be taken through February 8, 2010. Your nomination will honor someone special and help continue the legacy of Scouting leadership and service in your town!

Randy Brown
Scout Executive - Hoosier Trails Council
