NWGA Scouting friends and family,

It is my extremely sad duty to report that we’ve lost one of our own much too young. Stephen Sanders passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Stephen and his wife, Penny were heavily involved in Scouting in the Calhoun area, and Penny is our former Dalton Scout Shop manager. Their son, Elliot, is a former Waguli Lodge chief and Eagle Scout.

Services will be held this Saturday, Oct. 29 at 1pm in the chapel of Thomas Funeral Home in Calhoun. The family will receive friends on Friday, Oct. 28 from 5pm to 7pm at the funeral home.

I’ve attached the link to the funeral home’s site below:


Please keep Penny, Elliot, Heather and the family in your prayers during this most difficult time, and please forward this to all on your email lists who would want to know.


I’ll miss you, Brother Bear!
