2017 Annual Fund – Tom Guigni

Dec 2017

I am a member of the PSA and I choose to support PSA efforts via the 1973 Club!

Unlike many members, I did not attend or staff Philmont when I was young. I participated in a 7-day trek with my oldest son in 1997 and was bit by the Philmont bug. I returned for two more treks with both of my sons. In 2007, I was invited to serve as faculty for NAYLE (National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience.) As a volunteer faculty member, I became eligible to join the PSA. As a member, I learned of all of the ways the PSA supports the Philmont Scout Ranch and seasonal staff members; some examples include the staff dining hall, Silver Sage Staff Activity Center, the new museum and PSA office building, and scholarships for seasonal staff.

I retired from a career in Law Enforcement in 2008. After serving as faculty for NAYLE, I was looking for a way to return to Philmont. In 2011, I applied to work in Logistics during the summer. Since then, I have returned every summer and presently serve as the seasonal manager of Logistics.

I looked for a way to support the PSA and our efforts to support the Philmont Scout Ranch. I chose to donate via the 1973 club; every month, $19.73 is automatically deducted from my checking account. What an easy and painless way to support the PSA and Philmont Scout Ranch!
