Its Christmas Parade Prep Time!!

Dear Troop 111 Families,

Our brothers in Pack 614 are doing prep work, and planning for their Christmas Parade Float this Sunday, November 30th at 1 pm. Pack 614 has been doing this for over 10 years, please try to set aside some time to come by the Boys and Girls Club and give them some feedback, and get onboard to give them a hand over the next six weeks to get the float ready. The more help they have, the better the float will be!

SM Blog 6.22.14 on a Scout is Clean…

“A Scout is Clean…”

Today follows one of great adventure. An adventure that carried families to a far south location on the edge of land. The transport was filled with not one seat available and the weather was flawless. Our day started with a reminder that courtesy will always shine over the actions of those that wish darkness upon your day. The Scout Master of us all took action and provided a day of glory and rejoice. We traveled with thirty members and spent our day in the Sun, Sand and Waters of the Pacific.

Scouts were exposed to so many elements of society that we were all exhausted on the way home. Ultimately every person who joined us safely made their way home. What a way to spend the first day of summer…

Well, some things came to the surface that will be on our list to work on. Let me share this observation… As ASM Bore and I walked along the Santa Monica Pier we had multiple opportunities to do a good turn. One of those was to take a picture for a couple that was very honest and asked if we were going to run off with their camera. Mr. Bore pointed to my shirt and said “no we are Scout Leaders”, not something we could ever consider to do. After clicking a few pictures off the gentleman let us know that he is an Eagle Scout from 1960 at which he was 14 years old. Who would of thought? As we continued to walk we noticed some of the most well- dressed people you would ever meet. I had a reservation with most of them…

As we move through this adventure of life we are witness to many things we must discern. A Scout Law that came to mind is the one of a Scout is Clean. During our walk Mr. Bore and I passed many street performers. They were musical, magical and full of hope. Amazingly these individuals did not peak my concerns of a Scout is clean considering many had tattered clothes, sun damaged skin and were in desperate need of bathing. It was the people we passed along the pier that were dressed so fancy and seemed so civilized.

Many could have served well to be involved in Scouting and to live the law of “a Scout is clean.”

Lord Robert Baden Powell gave light to the concept of core values reminding us the content not the cover that defines our character. No matter how you dress or decorate a person, the spoken word will always paint a clear picture.

A picture is worth a thousand words and one foul word or phrase will destroy the perception of any sense of cleanliness. Simply put… We are as we speak in the eyes of others… so ask yourself this question. If someone is around your discussion with their eyes closed… what would you look like in their minds eye? A Scout is Clean… are you?
