A Scout is Helpful
A Scout cares about other people. He willingly volunteers to help others without payment or reward.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
-- Theodore Roosevelt
Frodo: I wish the Ring (pandemic) had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
-- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Jim Donnelly, Jr., former Troop 78 scout from the 1960s has written a compelling history of his time in Troop 78.
Jim Jr is the son of Jim Donnelly, Sr, long time Troop 78 leader, who recently stepped down as Troop Secretary. Jim Sr was the Troop Secretary for 60 years (that's right 60 years).
