Good Morning ladies and gents, I am involved in a Troop that has a "gently used" troop flag, that we just replaced. We thing its from the 1960s. Made of Linen and has embroidered Letters. With patches from the world Brotherhood campouts ranging from the mid 70s to the 90s. The committee has discussed what to do with it, and other than rejecting the option of selling it, we are not sure how to proceed. We know we would like to clean it up and Display it. Several locations discussed have been: City Hall, The church that is our Chartering Organization and others. SO #1 what is a safe way to get it clean, so we can preserve it? and #2 what is a great way to display it, so that we can show pride in our history and recruit, and inspire the scouts. Thanks again, Yours in Scouting, Robert Hynes
Hey all! When I was reading the Feedback for Adult leader thread I was thinking about resources that have helped me learn more about Scouting and grow as an adult volunteer. I'm hoping members of the forum can contribute things they found helpful here so that we create a wiki resource for folks visiting the forum. As I said in that thread, I think the resources for folks to learn more about Scouting are out there, but people may not know where to look for them. Suggested materials (books, videos, podcasts, websites, blogs, ect.) to post: Any official BSA resources you've found helpful. Any official Scouting resources from overseas. Any historical Scouting resources you've found helpful. Any unofficial Scouting resources you've come across and found helpful. Any materials you or another Scouter have created that you find helpful. Non-Scouting materials that support the mission of Scouting. Please feel free to elaborate on why you found that resource helpful. Ground rules: Please do not post anything that violates Scouter.com's terms of service. Please do not post anything that contradicts official BSA rules and regulations. (Exception being historical materials, like old handbooks.) Please credit the original creator if you're citing their work. Not really necessary for official publications of a Scout Association. My contribution: "Working the Patrol Method" by four Eagle Scouts. Great book that outlines the role of adults in a patrol method troop. Has insightful short stories that illustrate concepts. "The Scoutmaster Podcast" by Clarke Green. Long running podcast that covers a variety of topics in American Scouting. Episodes are sorted by topic, making them easy to find. "Baden-Powell: Two Lives of a Hero" by William Hillcourt. - I found it helpful to have historical perspective on the life and motivations of the founder of the Scouting movement from one of the people who knew B.P best. What has helped you in your Scouting journey?
If your unit is chartered by a Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod parish, life has just gotten more interesting. http://blogs.lcms.org/2015/lcms-statement-on-boy-scouts-of-america-policy-change
