  • THIS IS THE FINAL MONTH TO SELL CAMP CARDS - SIGN UP NOW Attention Pack 241 Scout Families: The fees & dues paid each year doesn't cover all the expenses of the Pack. The pack relies on fundraisers such as the Fall popcorn sale and the Spring Camp Card sale to keep the pack going. If you don't participate then not only does your scout not earn money in his account, but the pack doesn't receive any money.  Currently the pack spends an additional $23 / scout each crossover just on the Neckerchief, slide and a new book. If scouts do not participate in the fundraisers, the pack will not be able to provide these items to him. It is not fair for all to receive the benefits on the handwork and ...

Core Value for March
Compassion
Compassion
What does it mean?

COMPASSION: 
Being kind and considerate, and showing concern for the well-being of others


Related Theme: "Be Aware and Care"
Why "Be Aware and Care” for Compassion? A Compassionate Scout imagines himself in the situation of others and feels sympathetic to the distress. As we become aware of the needs of all creatures on Earth, we gain compassion for everything that inhabits our world and the importance of understanding tat we are all linked together. This is the reason Scouts are conservation – minded and
understand the need to recycle, conserve energy, and follow the principles of Leave No Trace.

Scout Equivalents to Compassion are:
  • Friendly 
A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He offers his friendship to people of all races and nations, and respects them even if their beliefs and customs are different from his own.
  • Kind
A Scout knows the strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. Without good reason, he does not harm or kill any living thing.

April's Core Value: Faith 
| Soaring the Skies

Do A Good Turn Daily
The Scout Slogan does not mean you are to do one "Good Turn" during the day and then stop. It means looking for chances to help throughout each day, then helping quietly, without boasting. Doing "Good Turns" should become an automatic, normal part of your life. Remember always that a "Good Turn" is an extra act of kindness. It is not just something you do because it is good manners. 
 

Adapted from the 1979 Official Boy Scout Handbook
