Thank you for reading my post incorrectly. I never stated that my council directly caused the death of my pack. The problem was on a much larger scale. Without revealing who I am, I also had a much larger position within my district. During that time, I saw DEs and council management that ONLY cared about their bottom line and how much money they could get out of each parent. I cared too much for my friends and neighbors in my community to keep my mouth shut and made sure everyone knew what was going on, including local businesses.
When we took over our pack 3 yrs ago, it was on the verge of death and we literally brought it back to life. We had SOME parent involvement, but a very small amount. We gave our entire selves to our pack and district and everyone around knew it.
When the council kicked me out, I wasnt the only one who was upset. Quite a few packs boycotted events, most wanted the resignation of our DE, and it drew media attention. I cant even begin to tell you what it did to me. Since I had to leave the pack, most parents were furious with what happened and left as well. The others went to another pack, which we refered to them.
Dont lecture me about my responsibility in a pack. We DID do it right. The only thing I expected from my council was to put our boys first, just as we do. But they ( a non-profit organization) only cared about how much they could take from us. So, YES, I do blame them for the down-fall of a wonderful pack, as well as taking away my 7 yr-olds chance of being an Eagle like his dad.
I do still believe in scouting, just not with this council.
