  3. Well,It wasn't until my oldest became a Tiger that I was re-energized in Scouting. So far I have been active in Scouting for almost 15 years,(as has my husband) and of course it isn't over. My oldest, 20, is a Life Scout who contributed to approximately 15 Eagle projects. He has graduated since,is in college and Is studying Law Enforcement/Criminal Justice. My daughters, 17 & 15, were both in girl scouts and have since joined a Venturing Crew and have both enjoyed working at Many Point as Counselors. My youngest son, 10, has enjoyed his scouting experience also, Tiger-Webelo. Just as his older siblings,he will also have life long friends from scouting. I was a Girl Scout Leader(2troops),PAL,Orientation Specialist,Service Unit Manager,Den Leader,Pack Trainer, and District Trainer. This journey continues as we my son's crossover is today! The best years are those in which we instill character in tomorrow's leaders through Scouting. Maria Horbal, American Legion Auxiliary Brklyn Ctr MN
