None of us now what scouting will look like this fall. I have a great idea though what scouting will look like in years to come. Our youth, our community, our nation and our world will (and do) need scouting more then ever.

New Month New Scout Law Focus

Posted by rtownsend on Jul 2 2020 - 11:49am
A Scout is obedientA Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them.”
Being obedient doesn't always seem easy.  Most of the time that we struggle with obedience, it is the fifth letter in the word that trips us up.  "i"  When we put our wants ahead of the rules or others, we will always struggle to be obedient.  
The second part of the statement is perfect for July 4th.  We are blessed to live in an amazing country and society that allows for Freedom of Speech.  When we identify something that we believe needs to be changed, we have the opportunity to be a force for that change.  Scouting is a great example; patrol leaders, SPL's, and adult leaders are all here to help in "an orderly manner".
Our challenge for the month...demonstrate obedience and set an example to others.

July 4th Flag Event. We are honored to be invited.

Hi Troop 241,

There is no July 4th parades this year and our community, the scouts and about everyone sure could use a proud feel good moment.
Troop 241 reached our to our new Mayor Grant and this is what we decided.
Our honor guard is raising Old  Glory the United States flag on July 4th complete with bugler.  It is followed with the singing of the National Anthem. 
Mayor Grant is inviting all his law enforcement to attend because as he put it “they can use a hug right now”.
I am inviting Sherif Reynolds as well.
We hope to get TV news and newspaper to cover it as it is so important to see awesome teens and a bright light on the BSA.
So please please come out Saturday at 09:00 to raise the flag at 09:29 in complete uniform.
Conor Bodner has honor guard practice at the hut tonight.  Please reach out to him if you want this oh so important honor to participate in his guard.
Call Dalton with questions.
