111 Years.


A newsletter just reminded that the Boy Scouts of America turned 111 last week. It started here in the States on February 8, 1910. BSA meant a lot to me growing up in the Cincinnati suburb of Indian Hill, Ohio. Troop 502 was one of three in IH. The BSA’s “feeder” organization the Cub Scouts also helped me transition as a nine-year-old from Chicago to Cincinnati in 1962 when P&G moved John Hull and family to a new city yet again and for the last time. My “Den Mother” in the Cub Scouts that year was the late Ellen Hill, Bill Hill’s mom. The Hills also became our neighbor in the south Drake Road area when we moved there from Miami Road in 1964. In many ways since our move in 1962 I have been a Kid With Luck. I’ve always known it, too. Scouting played a huge role in just the right years.
