A gala dinner-dance this Saturday will celebrate 100 years of the Bay Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, one of the nation’s oldest chartered scouting organizations.

“For Bay Area Council to celebrate its 100th anniversary is a true testament to the timelessness of scouting,” said Scott Dick, the third of four generations of scouts in his family dating back to 1921, now an executive board member of the council.

I count the scouts as among my most defining and affirming life experiences. It's unfortunate that they've been beset with some of the same problems and issues as other large "moral" organizations. Hopefully local leadership can keep the Galveston scouts going and doing good for another 100 years. [thumbup]
