February 8th National Boy Scout Day
Though they have had their issues over the last few years the Boys Scout organization does stand to make young men better men. It was founded by W.D. Boyce in 1910, seeing that our youth needed some guidance. If you don’t think the same need holds true today then you are probably someone who needs the Scouts today. The idea was to teach young men to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. All pretty good qualities to have.
How to celebrate – Become a Boy Scout leader. Don’t forget the Girl Scouts! Teach your children well. Go camping. Learn anew skill.
