I want to take a moment and say thank you to Mike Moegenberg and his team for putting on an amazing event. The volunteers that put this event together worked so hard to make this dream come true, we couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks also to the staff of Bay-Lakes Council. It was a long weekend, but together we helped a new tradition be born in our Council.

What a great time we had at the Casino Night, the inspiration from our District speakers, the pride in our community achievement in recognizing new Eagle Scouts and even a few that have made their mark in life, the awe of dedication that comes from presenting Silver Beavers, and then guest speaker, Terry Fossum, to inspire us to greatness. 

We elected a new Council President, Alan Barr, as well as a slate of members-at-large to fill our board of directors. 

A great weekend that I hope burns brightly as we move the message of Scouting forward in our Council. Thank you for joining us at the convention! Your participation made all the effort worthwhile.  We look forward to more Scouting friends joining us next year. Stay tuned for more information as to when and where!

P.S. It is June and it is summer. That means it is time to go to camp. I spent 14 summers at camp as a camper and then staffer. I wouldn’t trade those summers for anything! Join us for some Scouting adventures this summer!
