SCOUTING SMOKE SIGNALS

A TRADITION OF SERVICE

The Boy Scouts of America prides itself on encouraging youth to serve others. That’s why the Scout slogan is “Do a Good Turn Daily.” Scouts are encouraged to always be on the lookout for ways to help others and to do good deeds or good turns.

“. . . the final and chief test of the Scout is the doing of a good turn to somebody every day, quietly and without boasting. This is the proof of the Scout.” – The Boy Scout Handbook-First Edition

Youth today face many challenges. Scouting provides youth with ways to cope with these challenges by encouraging them to help their fellow man. What other youth organization does this?

 

PACK 3344 NEWS

Pack 3344, sponsored by Waynedale United Methodist Church on Old Trail Road, is proud to announce the crossing of Robert John Houlihan from Cub Scouting into Boy Scouting. He will receive the ARROW OF LIGHT award, the highest award Cub Scouting has to offer and the only award that a Cub Scout can take with him all the way through his Boy Scout years all the way to adulthood and wear on his leader uniform. Come share the joy with us as Robert receives the award from his Cub Scout Pack and is then received into Boy Scout Troop 344, which is also sponsored by Waynedale United Methodist Church.
