ScoutingNews 2011 Wrap-up

Thank you for your continued support of! This site is nothing without readers eager for more news on the Scouting movement. 2011 has been a great year, and also a year of changes for ScoutingNews, mainly in the past month. There are two new weekly “columns.” These columns touch on the practical side of Scouting, rather than just news. They are a resource for you.

Words of Wisdom Wednesday is an alliterate twist on the anecdotal “Scoutmaster’s Minute.” Since we all know, sticking to a one minute limit is virtually impossible. Feel free to use these at your unit meetings, while mentoring your Scouts and Venturers, or to send your co-workers into deep thought. Photo Friday gives you tips on capturing your Scouting memories. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the first few issues of these columns. The next column will debut in late January and there will be a spotlight for Scouts, Scouters, and Units. We’re on the look out for outstanding volunteers, passionate Scouts, or awesome units. If you have ideas for these columns or you’d like to suggest another column, please feel free to shoot an email to contactus -at-
