I have included a few pictures that are attached (see REPORTS & PIX tab). One thing is clear to me from the photos - we need to recruit a scout to take the pictures because mine don't do justice to the Scouts or Parents.
We have a very cool opportunity for Staff members (High School Scouts) only. John Dolan and his father RJ have set up a chance for the first 10 Staff Scouts who respond to Mr. Dolan to go downtown to 1871 and visit a startup they helped found on Oct 29.
1871 (http://www.1871.com/about-1871) is the entrepreneurial hub for Chicago's digital startups and the Dolans have set up a visit with the staff there to talk about starting a digital tech company, how to staff it, fund it, and make cool products. Staff Scouts will leave Winnetka on Thursday Oct 29 at about9:00 AM, will visit 1871 for a few hours, and then have lunch downstairs with all of the tech folks and be back in Winnetka no later than 2:00 PM. The group is purposely small and the time short to make it a quick visit. Please contact RJ Dolan at (RJD.cfgus.com) if you want to attend - Staff Scouts only.
As a side note - if anyone has events or trips that might be cool for limited number of Scouts - please let me know.
Thanks again for everyone who came out last night to support the Scouts.
