  1. Update 1/11/23 from Virginia legislature: Delegate of the 47th District of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Patrick Hope (D-Arlington) has introduced House Joint Resolution 531: Constitutional amendment (first reference); personal property tax; exemption. Provides that property owned by a chartered organization and used solely for the purpose of supporting one or more scouting units holding a charter issued by the Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts of the United States of America shall be exempt from state and local taxation. Those organizations would join other nonprofits that a
  2. Interesting side note... Gloversville, NY - Town stepped up to become Troop 7's new charter organization as the Foothills Methodist Church which had been CO for 60 years could no longer perform the duties. “Basically, it’s (Troop 7) going to have to be completely redone from the ground up. Where it stands, they have three active Boy Scouts in it, and no troop committee, so we’re going to be starting-over new.”, according to Town Clerk (and new COR) Jenni Mazur. “We will be discussing giving them a meeting place within the city. This is going to be a combined thing where boys from G
  3. "Well, I think we're definitely crazy guys," Voelz said in 2021 when the troop held the plunge at a frozen Mirror Lake at Camp Stidwell. "The troop is kind of known for that as well and we attract that kind of craziness, having fun regardless of your circumstances. Something the boys have heard me say a million times, is there is no such thing as bad weather, just poor choice in clothing. And so, you know, we got a fire, we can warm back up, we're not going to die — probably. "This is kind of who we are. We do crazy things, you know. And in the midst of not being able to do things, we're
  4. Update Dec 28, 2022: New Birth of Freedom Council executive board members are negotiating with the Central Pennsylvania Conservancy for the sale of 916 "buffer" acres around Camp Tuckahoe on South Mountain. Does this include March 15, 2021 fire area? More details at sources, except there is no mention of the March 15, 2021 fire which burned 150 acres along South Mountain. https://www.bradfordera.com/news/state/proposed-sale-of-camp-tuckahoe-could-help-local-boy-scout-council-replenish-its-reserves/article_6aa489c0-126e-51a9-955b-5b5323dd41ea.html https://www.news-journal.co
  5. Segler wanted to be a cowboy when he was a kid growing up in Alabama. Instead, he found his calling as a Western oil painter. “In 1977 I got a job as a cowboy in a living history program at Philmont Scout Ranch in northern New Mexico. I worked in the program for seven years,” he said. “During my time at the ranch, I began painting professionally, particularly cowboy subjects. I signed on with galleries in Ft. Worth and Santa Fe and started showing my work around the Southwest. I still go on cattle drives with them, which continues to inspire my paintings.” ... In 2016, the Eagle
  6. Mid-America Council seeks buyer for Little Sioux Scout Ranch The Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation is campaigning to raise $2 million by Dec 31, 2022 to purchase the almost 1,800 acres of land for wildlife habitat and recreational use. The ranch, spread across the western slope of the Loess Hills, has given Scouts a place to hike, canoe, fish and camp for more than 50 years. The Mid-America Council ...wanted to find a buyer who could do three things: open the property to the public; maintain the memorial to the four boys who died in the tornado; and honor a

  8. Good story. Here is a direct link. https://www.kare11.com/article/news/local/land-of-10000-stories/12-year-old-boy-scout-buys-11300-in-christmas-presents-for-foster-kids-he-doesnt-know/89-84b658b7-9bf1-4262-889b-ed3338b8575f
  9. Update 12/21/2022: Camp Trexler, Pocono Heritage Land Trust (PHLT) PHLT plans to put in a bid as soon as the property gets listed for sale in the first quarter of 2023, but one complication in the matter is that the land trust is only allowed to pay the appraised value of a property. So, a win for PHLT might look like someone else buying the property — a hunting club or church group, for example — and partnering with the PHLT to preserve it. “If we can’t buy the property, we want to work with whoever does buy the property to make sure that it’s not developed,” PHLT Executive Dir

  11. FYI, A collection of well researched postings on the early history of scouting in Seattle written by software engineer and historian Rob Ketcherside. An excerpt from Seattle's first patrol leaders Who the patrol leaders represented The patrol leaders represented a diversity of economic backgrounds, and children of immigrants versus descendants of colonists. But, they were all white boys. The religion of some of their families came up in newspapers or records, and in each case they were a denomination of Christianity. However, there was a rabbi involved in the founding of Sco
