    Hey, that's my home town! :thumbs:

    Great story. I was both a Cub and Boy Scout and had great experiences. It may sound silly, but the motto "Be Prepared" has been very helpful to me all my life. They teach good values.

    Great kid, gave a good portion of his reward to his mom. :applause:
