As we look ahead to February, we’ll have an opportunity to keep developing our winter fun skills – both having fun and doing service. The annual Ft. Snelling National Cemetery Clean-up depends every year on the Scouts to go from Christmas green to winter white. Every year, for 4 hours, nearly 500 volunteers descend on the Cemetery to pick-up, gather & dispose of the Holiday Decorations. It is amazing to see the Cemetery transform, and all because we show up and help. We also will have the opportunity to ‘be on display’ at our places of worship’ – assisting each of our faith beliefs in holding services and ‘doing our duty to God.’
So, my Scoutmaster challenge to each of you: where will you grow in your faith, how will you serve our Country? Scouting and the USA is strong because each person within it does his part to make it better. How will you add to that legacy this month?
Yours in Scouting,
