To all Suffolk County Scouts and Scouters
The last ten days have been some of the most difficult days of my Scouting Career. There are no words that can be said to make this situation anything less than a tragedy, one that will forever live in the hearts and minds of those that witnessed this horrible event. My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the McMorris Family. I ask that we all continue to pray for the full and speedy recovery of Thomas Lane who is still recovering in the hospital. Thomas, we look forward to seeing you at the next Scouting activity as soon as possible. Let us also not forget all of the other Scouts and Leaders who were hiking that day and witnessed this accident.
It is important for all to know that the unit was following proper BSA guidelines on the outing. They were hiking single file, wearing bright colors and well off the roadway. What occurred that day was an accident that none of us could have anticipated or prevented. The leadership did everything correctly. The Suffolk County Council will do whatever is necessary to support these Scouts, Scouters and their Families during these difficult times.
I have never in my career been more proud of the Scouting community and the Suffolk County Council then I was last week. The outpouring of support for the families and troop 161 has been nothing short of amazing.
