     This was the first, but definitely not my last, association with the Heartland Chapter of the FTA. I will be sure to recommend and encourage scouts and scouters (adults volunteers) to actively participate in FTA training, service projects, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Heartland Chapter activities have definitely earned priority scheduling on my calendar. Thank you again.
