When you meet George Linn you are struck by two attributes right away. First, he has the ability to remember dates of many moments in his life and secondly he is carrying a "big dream" on the inside and it shows on the outside as well. George was born on October 26, 1926 in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood. He grew up in a Pentecostal Church and always went to Sunday school. This Irish, German and French lad was an ice creamery stockroom boy who eventually became a noteworthy laborer in a Snoqualmie lumber mill. Most importantly, he always had "this dream."
Even before moving to Birch Bay on September 30, 1986 George has dreamed of becoming a Boy Scout Master. While growing up he wanted to be a scout but his family had neither the money or time for him to do so. He loves the outdoors and helping kids learn about life. Now he wants to gather enough support from local dads and sons to establish a new troop. George wears his uniform daily to remind himself and others of his vision. If you share this similar inspiration, you can contact the commissioner at the Mt. Baker Boy Scout Council and help make many dreams come true.
