**May 31 is the final day of my campaign. Every little bit helps! Please spread the word to help make this happen! **
This hard working man is Boxwell’s current head ranger, Rob Ward. Rob has been head ranger since 2015 and before that was a part of the CubWorld staff, specifically the archery instructor… from Australia. Of course, Rob isn’t really from Australia; he just played an Austrialian archer for the Cub Scouts!
We discussed this story and many others when I interviewed Ron on an unusually warm Novemeber 17, 2018. In fact, we sat outside at a picnic table for the entire 3 hours of the interview, discussing CubWorld, ranger life, and how a property like Boxwell works behind the scenes. It was an eye-opening interview in many ways.
I need these three hours with Rob transcribed.
Rob’s interview demonstrates the reality that we often don’t like to confront: Boxwell is a “home” to many Scouts and staff, but it is also a very expensive property that requires a great deal of maintenance and work. Rob’s interview helps us look behind the curtain to see how things operate. Again, these mechanics are all part of the story I need to tell.
Please, help me reach my goal. Contribute to the Boxwell Interview Transcription Project: https://www.gofundme.com/boxwell-history-transcription-project to get this interview transcribed so I can produce a history of Camp Boxwell for its centennial in 2021.
Rob Ward, head ranger. If you can believe it, this outdoor interview was conducted in the middle of November, 2018.
