The FINAL Last Post

OK, there really was one new post.  🙂  As of this morning, the new Council blog is up and running.  All posts are categorized, and the different Areas are now live as well.  Use the new link from now on:

Literally!  As Scouting in Central Escarpment Council works to integrate and support the Areas, there is a NEW, IMPROVED, (ah heck, add some more adjectives) BLOG maintained at the Council level.  There are breakdowns by Area (and yes, Wellington is there as a category!), as well as by section and activity.  It’s also hosted with our own servers, and you’ll find speed is much improved as well.  I will be continuing to maintain the new blog, though others will be posting as well (the other 7 areas and the Council Commissioner come to mind 🙂 )!  So, please bookmark the NEW location, and if you’re using the RSS feeds, make sure you add yourself to the new blog at:

Happy Scouting in the new Scouting Year, and  I’m off to post the 30 or 40 blog entries that haven’t happened as we reinvented ourselves!

Scoutrees Wrapup w/Rotary

Thanks to Peter Jaspers-Fayer for his efforts with Scoutrees.  He has received the following thank-you from Rotary:

  • Planted more than 3,000 trees
  • Can only guess at the # of participants
  • Nine Troops out including one from Georgetown & one from Cambridge.
  • One Guide Group out for the first time.
  • Just great to see all these young people involved
  • I hope they will all enjoy the benefits of their hard work in 20 or 30 years!
  • Thanks for the help, we must do it again next year!
