Mr.Duggan is away this week so I (Mr. Sprague) am helping out by writing this week’s Scoutmaster Message,
This week we had the pleasure of hosting Webelos scouts as they get a peak at what it is like to be in a Boy Scout Troop. I want to thank all of the scouts (and adults) for making our guests feel welcome. It was awesome to hear Luke’s comments at the end of the meeting about how patient and inclusive you scouts were towards the Webelos. Scout leaders, good job for working to control the raw energy of our young visitors and keep things moving forward. The unbridled enthusiasm of the boys can sometimes be exhausting, but you all did a great job of taking it all in stride.
It is useful to remember where you came from. Most likely, you too were once a Cub Scout with a healthy set of lungs and boundless energy. Now that you are “older and wiser”, think about how far you have come since you were in the 5th grade. Take a minute to reflect on how much you have learned and experienced, and on how much you have grown. You should be proud of your accomplishments. You should also realize how important it is to set a good example for the younger scouts around you. They are watching you whether you realize it or not. You are a role model for the scouts that follow you, which means you can make a difference in shaping the character of the young men around you.
This blog is a weekly message from the Scoutmaster.
