Thanks to the many Scouting families who came out to help us commemorate the beginning of our 100th year of service! Think of that…100 years ago, folks were driving Model T’s and watching black-and-white Charlie Chaplin movies at the theater. Today we drive SUV’s and F-150’s and we stream movies on our cell-phones! Times have changed but one thing has remained constant: the Scout Oath and Law.
For the past 100 years, incredible volunteers have delivered the programs of Scouting and taught the meaning of the Oath and Law to thousands of youth right here in the Muskingum Valley. Thank you for your role continuing this legacy! And thank you for the privilege of serving you in this great Council!
