Scout Sunday is 14 February

Posted on Feb 2 2016 - 5:57am

Since one of the 12 Laws of Scouting is "A Scout is Reverent," the first Scout Sunday was observed in 1914 just four years after the BSA was founded.  Every year since either the first or second Sunday in Feburary has been a day set aside to recognize our "duty to God.  Our charter organization, Parkwood United Methodist Church, recognizes Scout Sunday as the second Sunday in February.  On Sunday, 14 February, all Scouts and their families are encouraged to come to the 10:45AM worship service in uniform and stay afterwards for a reception with snacks and Scout memorabilia.  We are looking for Scouts and adults to help serve during the service, either as a greeter or by reading one of the scripture readings. Please contact Cubmaster Bailey (davidl.bailey@sas.com) if your scout would like to do this. You are also encouraged to bring Scout memorabilia to display at the reception.  This can be patches, Pinewood Derby Cars, handbooks, uniforms, etc.  Hope to see you there.

Blue & Gold is February 27, 2015 @ 4:45pm-RSVP Today!
