Leadership as "Authenticity"

Recommended Posts

The first CO that that I mentioned was a Hindu congregation that had purchased the building that had housed a Protestant congregation.  In buying the building, they  very kindly agreed to take the exiting troop as a free tenant,  but they were stunned when they finally read what they had been signing.  They had no idea there was any undertaking other than supplying a meeting space.  I wondered if the paperwork went in unsigned, but I did not want to know if a signature was forged.  

I recall that council was very much against combining troops.  Patrols masquerading as troops was just fine.  One district survey in 1990 revealed its average troop had ten active youth members and just under two active adult members,  whatever the paperwork said.  The "good old days."
