Hello, my name is Stefan Purgason and I am a Boy Scout working on my communications merit badge. One requirement is for me to send a letter to the editor of a newspaper, expressing opinions or information on a subject.
The subject I am writing about is the issue on the OC Sailing & Events Center at Baby Beach. You may already know about the details of this issue, but I will recap. There is a plan (by the County of Orange) to turn (the management of the center over to) a private organization or business. The problem is that this could eliminate the groups there already, including Westwind Sailing and Mariner Sea Scouts.
The Sea Scouts, specifically, is a program that builds character for the young people involved in their nautical events. The loss of these groups would be a major loss in the community and a great disappointment for those who work to support these events and programs.
