Mary the Mentor

Now in her third year in charge of Den 1 (her son Ben’s den; older brother Connor recently crossed over to Scouts BSA, Troop 77 in Hudson), Mary says this year’s highlights include volunteering with “Kylee’s Care Kits” and the “Feed A Neighbor” programs. “I like connecting scouting to our community and providing opportunities for the Scouts to make a difference,” she explained.

Next up was the “Super Science Adventure” and working toward the Up and Away Nova award. “It was great to see the parents and kids work together on science experiments,” added Mary. “This year, we did so much with science between this adventure and the Nova award. I am blown away by what my scouts know and the ideas they bring to the table.”

Finally, attending “Snore and Roar” at the Roger Williams Zoo was very high on Millette’s list. 

“But getting to know my scouts and their families” remains the ultimate highlight for Mary. 

“We have such a great group of kids,” she explained. “They are funny, eager to learn and help, and have such great ideas.”

Congratulations to Mary and her Pack 3104 Den 1 Bears!
