A word from David Crane, Jamboree Troop Scoutmaster

20170119_113056I’ve been involved in Scouting since my oldest was a Tiger, back in 2003. After becoming the Den Leader for his age group in 2005, I went on to become Cubmaster for Pack 55 in Fulton in 2011. After a two year tenure as Cubmaster, while my oldest (Trask) was in Troop 50, I took on the duties of Advancement Chair in the Troop. After my youngest (Mason) crossed over in 2014, my days in Cubs came to an end.

While involved in Cubs, I led multiple campouts and summer camps. Way back to Camp Thunderbird from 2004, to multiple sessions at Camp Hohn. I’ve lead the Boy Scouts at Summer Camp the past 4 years and have organized and led many Polar Bears, Dutch Oven, Climbing, and other themed weekends. My oldest, Trask, went to Jamboree in 2013 and had a great time.

I am originally from Williamsburg, Missouri and grew up in, and now own, Crane’s Country Store. This is a fourth generation general store that has been open since 1899. We sell everything from Boots, Bullets, Britches, and Bologna. I am a member of the Old Auxvasse, Nine Mile Presbyterian Church, a former YMCA Board Member, and a long time supporter of Westminster College where I graduated from in 1990. My wife Amy and I with the rest of the family, enjoys spending time at our family farm, traveling to Michigan in the summer, and attending Mizzou basketball games.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the time I have been a scouter and have seen so many young men grow in the program. I am looking forward to Jamboree with the Great Rivers Council and my youngest son.

A word from Dr. Tom Ciolino, Jamboree Troop Assistant Scoutmaster

Ciolino PicGreetings! My scouting experience began in St. Louis as a youth in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, becoming an Eagle Scout. In 2010 my son became a Tiger Cub with Pack 6 in Columbia where I served as a Den Leader for 5 years, Assistant Cubmaster 1 year, and Cubmaster for 2 years. I received leadership training at the Philmont Training Center in 2012, and returned to Philmont in 2013 as an adult advisor for the Great Rivers Council crew trek.

Currently I am an Assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 121 in Columbia. I feel honored to be selected as an Assistant Scoutmaster for Jamboree. As an internal medicine physician, I will be looking after the health and safety of the scouts in our crew during the Jamboree.
