Eymard Orth, the assistant scoutmaster of Troop 68, is now an author! Last night I ordered (the first?) 200 copies of his book The Way It Was. He and Lucille are pretty excited about it.

(I helped him to get it published through an online publisher.)

His life, struggles, and love.
And one chapter about scouting.

I am thinking that Eymard will receive the shipment the week of Easter.

I do not know how much he will be charging per book. My guess would be about $10.00.

He will be asking for $10.00 per book.

I read the Beacon article today about Eymard. Looks good.

Eymard gave me a copy of the book, signed and everything.

I haven't read much yet, but I skipped ahead to the Boy Scout section. Smile
