Hi Group,

SHARE our posts and be our Facebook FRIEND ---> https://www.facebook.com/reachout.america

FOLLOW us on Twitter and RETWEET ---> @ReachoutAmerica and @WinADreamHouse

TELL everyone you know!

(Oh, and if you want to buy some raffle tickets, that would help a lot too.)

Some members of the Atlanta volunteers have successfully started a cubscout pack where all 6 cubscouts are challenged!  We had our first meeting last Saturday and it was a big success.  Some activities have and will, occur at “Dustins Place”, (http://www.brechtstables.org/) that is supported by donations from “Reach Out America”  (www.ReachoutAmerica.com).  Meetings are held at the Cumming Public Library, sponsored by Forsyth Area Sports Teams, (wavetheusaflag.com) Inc. on the first and third Saturdays of the month from 2:30 to 4 pm.

Please do one very, very simple thing to support the donations going to Dustins Place, help us by using social media to simply click a “like” on facebook and share this information and please ask others to share it.  This group costs almost $20 a month in internet charges, paid from a nonprofit,  please do your share to keep us going and simply give a few clicks!

Reachout America has made therapy and camps possible for many, many kids across the country and they are also a sponsor of challenged kids in our community. 

If you would like to present a cubscout lesson to our group, please contact me.  (Alan[masked] ) and we will plan it.  We are working on making a fire using a bow and drill, fire by percussion, a crystal radio, using dogs as pack animals and identification of dangerous and useful native Georgia plants and trees.  If you have other basic woodland skills, skits or fun ideas I would be interested in hearing from you.  Our den is the “Wolves”, and building a standard is next. (like a den flag but with decorations hanging from it)  A couple of kids have profound challenges, and it will take work to teach them to be “masters” at basic woodland skills as they do not even speak. The goal is to take a year to master a skill so they can be very “special” when they camp with normal boys and show them a thing or too.  Being “on top”, even for just one time, for part of one day, is an extremely important event in these boys lives, and it takes lots of work.
