So sorry to lose a man loved so well. Camp Hinds was never the same after you left. Your funnel cakes were the best!  Love to your Dad, Aidan and Teresa. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand!

Walter Lamb,
Scoutmaster Windham, Maine

May the Great Scoutmaster be with you on this next leg of your journey.

We’ll never replace Tom Henderson in the galaxy of Camp Hinds notables.  I knew him first as a young Scout in Troop 22, when he became my Senior Patrol Leader, Eagle Scout, all-time champion in fund raising drives and all-around camper. He was my co-leader on high adventure trips, including a 50 miler on the Appalachian Trail. He then succeeded me as Scoutmaster of Troop 22,  a position which he regretfully had to end due to the pressure of his work in forestry, which took him all over the northeast.  His career at Camp Hinds covered multiple staff positions, all done well by this multi-talented person.  I’ll never forget his daring in performing the flaming hoop dance at some of our Hinds council fires, and his leadership as Lodge Chief for two years. Thanks to Walter Lamb for recalling Tom’s love of the Irish farewell – “may the road rise to meet you…”
