Farewell to our District Executive
February 20, 2019
As of February 16th, I will be moving to the Washington, DC District to serve as District Director and Outreach Director. While bittersweet, it has been an absolute honor to serve you over the course of the past year. Thank you for embracing me and welcoming me to your Scouting family. We had so many accomplishments but I’m most proud of all the new families we welcomed to Scouting. We made history in 2019!
What I will miss the most are all the smiling Cub Scouts and amazing staff from Day Camp!
District leadership, thank you for mentoring me and the time well spent working together on everything from high profile special events to cooking hot dogs for Cubs. You all have left a lasting impression on me and I will carry your passion for Scouting with me wherever I go.
From Lord Baden-Powell:
“The Movement has already, in the comparatively short period of its existence, established itself onto a wide and so strong a footing as to show most encouraging promise of what may be possible to it in the coming years. Its aim is to produce healthy, happy, helpful citizens, of both sexes, to eradicate the prevailing narrow self-interest; personal, political, sectarian and national, and to substitute for it a broader spirit of self-sacrifice and service in the cause of humanity; and thus to develop mutual goodwill and cooperation not only within our own country but abroad, between all countries.”
Any questions should now be addressed to Michael Werling, District Director, @ Michael.Werling@scouting.org.
Thank you for everything you do in service of our youth.
