One aspect of Scouting that our Cub Scouts can easily understand is service to community. The Scout Oath reminds them that they have a duty to our country and the Scout Law calls for them to be Helpful and Friendly. This time of year calls on our Scouts and families to demonstrate their service to our community.
In March, we collected nearly 2000 pieces of non-perishable food as part of Scouting for Food. In April, we will perform a service project for the county by clearing Garlic Mustard at Retzer Nature Center and we will perform service to our Chartered Organization by helping park cars at the annual Rose Glen Chicken BBQ. Each of these is a great opportunity for the Scouts to feel a connection to the community and to know that they can make a difference.
I encourage your family to participate in both of these opportunities. With everyone’s participation, we will be able to make a great impact and showcase just how great Pack 63 is.
