Salisbury Rotary Club had three area Boy Scout leaders visit the club’s weekly luncheon to talk about the CT River District’s efforts to revitalize Scouting in the NW Corner.  A troop currently exists in Canaan and they are looking for an organization to sponsor development of new troops for Salisbury and other local towns.
   Interesting to learn that, since girls have been included nationally, the name has changed from BSA (Boy Scouts of America) to Scouting USA.  Girls & Boys have their own separate dens & troops and are not coed.
       The three guests:  Lonny Mo, a long time scouter, and retired CT state police officer, was the scoutmaster of the troop in Sharon for about 12 years, then served as District Commissioner and then Council Commissioner and is now VP of the Council, responsible for programs. Luke Blinn District Scout Executive for the western district of Connecticut River‘s Council promoting and developing the Scouting programs.  Sandy Rhoades, Asst. District Exec for the Council the last 10+ years and active in Scouting for 65 years!
   FMI: and Lucas Blinn, District Executive @ 860/913-2742
    SRC VP Peter Fitting conducted the meeting.
