Cub-O-Ree !!

We had so much fun today. We were volunteers for the Cub-O-Ree out at the Barking Sands Missile Base. It was put on by the Navy and was an obstacle course. We were part of the volunteers helping with 85 boys between the ages of 8-11. Our ward Primary was in charge and I must say it went off without a hitch. The Primary Pres. is relieved she won't have to do it again for 11 years. Do you think she might be released by then? It was wonderful. There were groups of scouts from all over the island. Not all the groups were LDS. I had the chance in fact, to talk to a gentleman, who thought I was a Chaplin, and tell him a little about what we believe. He thought it was neat that the church used scouting as a program for young men. It teaches such good things he said and that is really important now days. Wally and I helped with the lunch for the volunteers. The best surprise of all came for the boys when the fire department at the base brought out their brand new trucks for the scouts to look inside and climb all over. I will tell you though that we were exhausted when the day was over!
