Outreach With Boy Scouts
Here Dr. Johnson visits Cub Scout Pack 98. Dr. Johnson's goal for the evening was to excite the boys about the sport of fishing. Apparently it worked as, "...many of the boys jumped out of their seats and came to the front of the room, eager to answer questions and make comments."
In addition to Dr. Johnson's dedication, the Eagle Claw Company donated hooks and stickers for the boys who eagerly received them!
Thanks Dr. Johnson and Eagle Claw!
