Virtual Happy Hour 5:30 Thursday, May 7th
John Schrot introduced our member Vic Pooler CEO, Great Lakes BSA, Detroit 
Vic gave us the most complete story of drastic changes the Covid19 has made for the programs that Scouts participate in. Much of the scouting programs are about getting people outdoors. Vic has had to transform himself into a work at home executive. He has had to become a  Zoom master. Working up to 80 hours a week. I can't imagine the complexity of what he is going thru. You are beyond and above heroic in your work. One reason I Love Rotary is that we get to know people doing things like you are doing. Thank you for telling us your story.
