There were many other booths I stopped by, but I forgot to take pictures.

It is a wet and windy Thursday night in Mesa, Arizona. I was able to get the Scouting Heritage booth setup at the Family History Expo. A big thanks to all those who helped this idea become reality.
About a month ago I got the idea of doing a Scouting booth at the Arizona Family History Expo. After all, it is Scouting’s 100th anniversary and I couldn’t think of a better group of people to share it with than those attending the expo.
The first contact I tried to make with the Boy Scouts was the Grand Canyon Council. I mistakenly thought that there was already a group at council that would be interested in such an event and would already have the resources to make it happen. Now it was already the first week in January.
I next tried the Mesa District since the expo falls within their boundaries and it would be easier to get local volunteers. The timing must have been bad as they couldn’t offer any assistance.
I was about to give up on the whole idea, but couldn’t let it go. I live in North Phoenix which is 40 minutes from where the expo would be held. I decided to contact the Thunderbird district executive, Carol Chacon, to see if there was anything she could do.
Here is a photo of Holly Hansen, President of Family History Expos, Inc. directing the volunteers as they stuff bags. She doesn’t know I took this.
There was quite the assembly line putting the bags together:
Thank you to all the volunteers that make this happen.
See you at the expo tomorrow!
