Boy Scouts of America: Placing a Local Story in the Context of a Bigger Picture


Boy Scout Troop's long history comes to an end. (Sussex Sun, 3/28/2014)

The local story.  Probably the oldest Sussex area Boy Scout group, Troop 39, has disbanded recently because of lack of volunteer leadership and various other factors. This was revealed in a month's letter from the Sussex Lions Club, which for years has been a financial angel for the troop.

Scouting still does some great stuff for kids. I'm not surprised volunteers are an issue, it's the same all over for other organizations.
