Why I Went to Akela’s Council “Back Then” and Why I Go Now ~ By Annette Ward Apr 13, 2016
My husband and I had just moved to Mona, Utah after having lived over thirty years in Farmington, Utah. My first position or call in our new LDS ward was to be a Webelos leader. I can’t say I was overjoyed. But, being the mother of seven boys, the program wasn’t completely unfamiliar. In Farmington, I had been a Wolf or Bear leader several times. There was no training. No instructions. It was simply a passing on of a couple of books and records. We had weekly den meetings and attended pack meeting once a month. It was all okay. The activities were fun and even useful for the boys. I would not have considered it a life changing experience for the boys…or for me, but we did it.
