It Takes a Special Mother

There is something extra special about a Scouting mother.  From a very early age mothers are the ones who help us along our scouting path.  They make sure our uniforms are washed and we know where to find our handbooks as Tiger Cubs.  They go door to door to help us deliver the boxes upon boxes of Boy Scout popcorn we sold.  They sew a bazillion Merit Badges onto our sashes and ensure we get to weekly meetings on time.  They walk us through the process of completing our Eagle Projects.  They encourage us to broaden our horizons by hiking 127 miles in the mountains of Philmont and to face our fears of deep sea scuba diving.  They stand by us as we receive our Bronze and Gold Awards and are welcomed into the roles of Crew President and Crew Secretary.

Through every little step of our Scouting careers our mothers are there to see us grow in leadership, community service and civic duty.  Without our Scouting mothers we probably would have given up at the first challenge we faced.  But because of our mothers, we have succeeded and we have the stories and memories for proof.  Thank you, moms, for encouraging us and for giving us the extra boost of focus when we needed it the most.  Happy Mother’s Day.

From Tiger Cub to Venturer:
Thank you, Mom.

So Humbled

The small acts of service we provide in our community are not for recognition but strictly just a way for us to show our community we are thankful for their support.  Service projects are one way we are able to give back to a community who has given so much to its citizens.  However, at the end of April, Venture Crew 91 was given the great honor of being awarded the Pearce Ambassador Award for volunteerism. Every year Pearce Community Center recognizes individuals and groups for their community service.  We are so very humbled to be so publicly recognized for our service.   Thank you for such an honor and we have every intention of continuing to serve our community in every way possible.
