Millet Scouts in danger of closing

Writer says Scouting offers much, but needs leaders

Dear editor,

Just writing to remind the families and people of Millet and Millet area that they have a Scout hall located to the north of the Millet Legion. Scouting has had a home in Millet for over 60 years and it is looking like that could be coming to an end.

Scouting started in our family in the Pipestone area in 1990, with my husband as the Cub leader and the next year, myself as the Beaver leader.

Forward many years later, I have continued to enjoy the opportunity to work and play with Beaver age youth in the Millet area. I have worked with and learned from so many amazing leaders that had a strong desire to develop youth for their future. Scouting is a great program for developing youth in all areas of their growing: physical, mental, social, emotional and even spiritual. I am so honored to be able to say our children as adults have taken on “taking care of the world” by volunteering in the communities where they now reside.

1st Millet Scouting needs people – a family or a couple of families to step up with a desire to learn and have fun. There are youth out there that would benefit tremendously from this type of program. They need adults to lead the way.

Thank you hearing me out.

Donna Mae Marecha
