Anyway the chairman of the AGM was going through the list of reappointments for the year.
The Scouts Executive representative was reappointed, the Cubs Executive representative likewise. It was then noted that there wasn’t an Executive representing the Beavers.
The chair looked around the room and asked if there were any ‘Mums who would be interested in the role’. The Beaver Colony leader glanced over in my direction and said ‘Or Dads of course’. The direction of her glance was followed by everyone else in the room.
‘Erhm, ahhh, Yes of course I’d love to’ well it’s difficult to say anything else under those circumstances and the appointment was endorsed unanimously.
If the above seems a little hesitant it’s not that I’m unenthusiastic. It’s rather that it’s one of those situations where you end up somewhere completely different to what you expected only a few moments before.
I do try to ‘Be Prepared’ but it doesn’t always quite work out that way.
I just hope that I can do a good job. Not so much for me but for Fred and his group
