Many youngsters first experienced camping and the many wonders of the great outdoors through Scouting, which started back in 1911 and continues today.
Back more than a half-century this old writer was first involved in Scouting and later was an adult leader. My wife, Phyllis, was a Girl Scout leader, and son, Erik, and daughter, Michelle, both were Scouts. Michelle advanced to a Gold Bar, the highest rank or award in Girl Scouts.
So it was a proud day Sunday when grandson Denver was honored with the Eagle Scout award.
