Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

It was good to meet different Scout leaders from around the state, and exchange ideas. We divided ourselves up into patrols on the Saturday and selected our own goals for the day.
