That leads to yonder hill.
My way was bathed in soft moonlight,
And the night was warm and still.


As I walked, my memory faded back,

Summer is here and Scouting activities are in full swing. Boys are attending summer camp at Camp Chief Little Turtle. I can hear their shouts of excitement clear down here in Waynedale. I can't wait to get up there next week and visit Troop 38 and take some pictures. I try to do this every year with the troops that I'm working with. Jerry Lloyd, Scoutmaster for Troop 38, said that Nick Turpchinoff will be SPL for Summer Camp this year. If things go according to plan, Nick will be Troop...
