Troop 483 Weekly Update
Yesterday I saw a post from a good friend of mine who was talking about Scouting. This gentleman is a well respected Scouter who I have known for the majority of my life. I knew him when I was a young Scout and I now work with him on Camp Staff for the Cub Scout Resident Camp at Camp Cherry Valley.
In his recent post he was speaking of the Order of the Arrow and what impact it has on Scouting as well as for our mission in Scouting to help grow young people into becoming better citizens.
After reading his post I reflected on our troop. Through our skills and in our meetings, we have demonstrated all that is good in society. We welcome each Scout to our meetings and support one another, no matter what. I know it's difficult to be mixed up every 6 months and put into new Patrols or to be placed into a temporary Patrol on a camp out, but these are the experiences that will help us all grow into the best of our Society.
Being willing to give selflessly of yourself to help someone defines what you are as Scouts. The phrase "Do a Good Turn Daily' helps bring this to mind each time we say it. To be bigger than what is around you. One major way we can show this is through our help with service projects. But then, on the other hand, the simple gesture of holding a door open for someone can show that we are doing our part to help make this world a better place.
As my friend said in the last line of his post....
"As long as there are those who 'get it', there will always be a pace in this nation for Scouting"
