Editorial: Scouting For Leaders


Nassau County got into Scouting way back in 1917 with the first Boy Scout council and first Girl Scout troop. At the time, the orienteering and outdoor skills Scouting promotes were still useful, even in

Floral Park. Nearly 100 years later, our lives are much less rustic. Now, troops are more likely to promote robotics studies and entrepreneurship than how to start a fire or build a lean-to.
