Serving the needs of Scouting families along the 515 Corridor
Mountain District
Northeast Georgia Council of the Boy Scouts of America
Join us as we pay tribute to one of our tremendous Scouters, Ned Rand.  Former Mountain District Commissioner Ned Rand, went to be with our Lord around 7:45 p.m. on Monday night.  Please join me in keeping Ned's family in your prayers at this time. 

Memorial Arrangements:  A memorial service for Ned will be held at the Blue Ridge United Methodist Church (where we have the Roundtable meetings) at 11:00 a.m., on Saturday, October 19th  (not this
Saturday but next Saturday).  Scouters please wear Class A uniform, and Ned's family would like for as many Scouts and Scouters as possible to be in attendance.

Ned was in Scouting as a youth and achieved the rank of Second Class Scout.   He has served the Mountain District as the District Commissioner.   His adult Scouting career included serving as an
assistant Scoutmaster and later as Scoutmaster to Boy Scout Troop 87 of Roswell, Georgia leading his own sons, Chris and Ned Jr. to Scouting excellence as well.  He is Wood Badge trained and has served
as a staff member on two Wood Badge Courses.  He is a member of the Order of the Arrow.   In addition to the District Award of Merit, Ned most recently received two prestigous awards - the Silver Beaver as well as the James E. West.

Ned gave back to the community in other ways as well.  He was an active member of the local Trout Unlimited Chapter and linked the Scouts to that effort.  He also used his knowledge of digital
photography to begin the Blue Ridge Mountain Photographers.

In lieu if flowers, Ned's wishes were to have friends donate to the Northeast GA Council, specifying the funds as Mountain District James E West Fellowship endowment. This is important that it specified this
way on the check.

Please join us next Saturday in celebrating the legacy of one of our dear friends.
