I joined scouts Canada in the fall of 1998 as a first year cub scout. I joined at our town's "one stop" registration where the table was being manned by a girl I knew in school a little and her mom. We became fast friends after that and because of scouts Canada, we have become life long friends. Our group folded in 2005 because our group chairperson had stepped down and nobody wanted to stop up. I rejoined the program as a Scouter in 2014 and I haven't looked back since.
