Hugged Yer Commissioner Lately?

Commissioners are pretty tolerant folks. They've listen for years to jibes like "The redcoats are coming!" and "Here comes a Commissioner--hide the coffee!" and "Uh-Oh! There's the Patch Police!" Yet, despite these wisecracks, they have just one thing motivating them to get out there and visit with you, even though their own kid's long aged out of the program -- They believe in Scouting, as the backbone of your town, and our country. They're there to help. They've been visiting your unit probably for several years, maybe more, with only the mission of helping you deliver the best Scouting program you're capable of to the youth you serve. So, have you hugged your Commissioner lately? Invited 'em to you Blue & Gold banquet? Asked 'em to do some judging at your Pinewood Derby? Presented them with a Troop Neckerchief and made 'em an "honorary member"? Asked 'em to speak at your Court of Honor, or make a presentation at it? Invited 'em to sit on a board of review for one of your Eagle candidates? Think it over. Scouting's a two-way street, too. Happy Scouting! Andy
