Actually, the article is from the 95th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. But I just wanted to note that today is the 97th birthday of the Boy Scouts of America.
Ping the list, please.
How many active Scouts or Scouters do we have here?
How many former Scouts or Scouters (quite a few, I bet)?
Happy birthday to the organization that meant more to my life than any other.
Son has moved up to Boy Scouts this month
Blue and Gold is tonight
Yep I am going to a dinner tonight honoring the occasion.
(from the home of troop #1)
My son's a Tiger Cub.
Where are my cookies?
As the Girl Scouts drift further and further towards politically correctness and amorality, the BSA continues to hold true to its founding ideals, despite the torrent of contempt and hatred spewed upon it from the American Left.
God bless Lord Robert Baden-Powell and William D. Boyce.
Happy Birthday BSA!
(Former Life, with enough time and badges for eagle but.... things happen)
And I just found a bunch of my old Camp & Retreat patches! :-)
Troop 606 Malden MA. Asst. Sr. Patrol Leader Star Rank.
So, is the ACLU sending their best wishes?
My son, 18, is an Eagle Scout. I just retired as Scoutmaster after 5 years. We graduated 15 Eagle Scouts, all hardworking young men, in a year and a half.
First Boy Scout troop west of the Mississippi, as I understand it. In that little town.... who'da thunk?
Almost as old as Helen Thomas.
Does being in the girl scouts count? I was from age 9 until age 14.
Happy birthday Boy Scouts of America!
Are there any other girls' organizations that hold to a better standard?
Thanks, RonF, for the reminder.
Happy birthday, BSA! My wishes for many, many more!
Scouting was a significant positive influence in my youth.
Serving as an adult leader was an honor and also great fun.
Participating in merit badge pow-wows is a blast.
