MSPP #51: The Leaders of Scouting (Joe)

on October 13, 2008 in Leadership, podcast

Twenty years ago the volunteers at Mel-TV, our local cable access television station, filmed a program in which five men who were Scout leaders were interviewed about their Scouting experiences. I recently took that old vhs tape and transferred it to a dvd. I thought to myself as I was transferring the program that many of the things being said by those gentlemen still apply to Scouting today. I thought I would break this show down into parts for the Melrose Scouting Productions Podcast, each part being one of the interviews.

This podcast post features the second interview from The Leaders of Scouting. Joe was the Pack 68 Cubmaster for many years in the 1980’s. All four of his boys were members of the Pack, and graduated to Troop 68 when they became old enough. Joe also helped out with several troop functions, although he never actually registered as a troop leader. During the interview he talks about how he became the cubmaster, some of his memorable experiences as a cubmaster, his experiences of helping the Boy Scout troop, and his feeling about Scouting in general.
