Hello WB2013 Participants! We are in that jolly and joyful time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our days are shorter and seem to slip by mighty fast! In fact, it has been 7 months and a few days since we wrapped up Day 6 of WB2013 – YOUR course – the Best Wood Badge Course Ever!
I am pleased to say that we just beaded the first three participants from our course: Maria and Jeff Taylor, and Albert Browder. They are now Wood Badgers! Please congratulate them on their achievements!
I am pleased, too, with the progress I have heard from a good number of your fellow participants. All are moving along on their ticket goals, and have future projects mapped out that will help them reach the end zone.
Please contact your Counselor and give him or her an update, and let them help you with anything with which you need a hand or to discuss.
I hope that you are having fun working your tickets, you are learning from your various goals, and most of all that your Units and Scouts are benefiting from all your good work!
Please drop me a return email and tell me how you are doing!
A very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy Holidays to all!
Oh, and here’s a bit of Wood Badge fun that you can substitute for the Wood Badge Song during the next few weeks:
THE EIGHT DAYS OF WOOD BADGE
(Tune: “The Twelve Days of Christmas”)
On the first day of Wood Badge,
My leader said to me,
You know there’s no time to sit down.
2. Two wooden beads
3. Three broad hats
4. Four flying flags
5. Five more leadership skills
6. All patrols a hiking
7. Everyone’s a feasting
8. All Scouters leaving.
Yours In Scouting,
