The requirement to be an active member of the club is easy to brush over, but consider what it means.

It means following the Pathfinder Law and being a good representative of the club.

Read the book "The Happy Path" if not previously read.


The Happy Path is a 128 page book of stories by Lawrence Maxwell published by the Review and Herald. There are 16 chapters themed to the lines of the Pathfinder Pledge.
