Rob does have that "twinkle". It comes easy to him.
As does that smile. His teeth were so white.
Here's another web article about his visit:http://www.swancreekdistrict.org/trumpter0306.htm

ĎBoston Robí Visits Pack 101
CBSís The Early Show visited Waterville on Monday January 16th at the old fire station where the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts have their meetings. They interviewed and filmed Pack 101ís Webelos for two hours. The segment aired Monday, February 27, 2006 on CBSís The Early Show.
Annette sent an e-mail in November 2005 to "Boston Rob", Rob Mariano, of Survivor and Amazing Race fame, asking for his help with her second-year, Webelos dens, not knowing Rob himself was a former scout. Rob has a segment called Rob to the Rescue on the Early Show. Her son Matthew is in the den and she is the Assistant Webelos Leader. The Leaders are Rick and Randy . The Webelos had completed 10-15 various badges needed to cross over to Boy Scouts, but not one had completed his Craftsman badge requirements.
Rob chose Annetteís email (out of 4000) as one of his projects, perhaps realizing many boys drop out of Scouting at this point (when Cubs become Boy Scouts). Boston Rob and CBS may have figured this would be a good story that could help Scouting.
Joe Long, Producer at CBS The Early Show, contacted the National Boy Scout office in Texas and they donated 20 craft kits for each of the boys to do with Boston Rob's help. The Toledo Erie Shores Council donated 4 kits and an activity shirt for Rob to wear.
Eleven scouts participated: Connor, Adam, Rob, Matt, Michael, Adam, Ben, Spencer, Potter, Andrew, and Chet, all 5th graders from Fallen Timber Middle School. The boys had a great time and conducted themselves as the fine young men they are becoming. They represented Waterville well! Rob Mariano autographed his red activity shirt and Pack 101 will be holding a silent auction to raise funds for the pack at their annual Blue & Gold Banquet.
