Do My Best...

Posted on Jun 20 2021 - 1:32am

As part of the summer series of these announcements, we will be looking more closely at the Scout Oath, break it down into pieces, and examine its meaning.  Today, we will look at 'Do My Best'.  This is only part of the Scout Oath that brings in the Cub Scout Motto.  What does it mean to do your best?  You should try as hard as you can to achieve something.  In Scouting, that could be finishing a long strenuous hike, putting a tent together for the first time, or pulling a heavy wagon of cans at Scouting for Food.  The list can go on in Scouting or in life.  There are times in life we are given jobs or tasks that are not necessarily the most interesting or inspiring, but it is how we approach it that makes the Scout Oath and Cub Scout Motto come alive. You elect to go all-in, and if first, you don't succeed, try and try again. You should never be afraid to ask for help, and you should always remain positive in performing the task and optimistic toward succeeding. At last, there are times when you will fail at the end, but it is important to know that if you performed all the items listed above, you did your best.  Winston Churchill once said, "Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts."  In this case, it takes a lot of courage to "Do Your Best".  Tying this back to the Scout Oath, you'll notice it is only separated by commas or semicolons, hence everything in the oath is tied back to the Scout saying they'll do their best.

On My Honor...

Posted on Jun 12 2021 - 11:34pm

As part of the summer series of these announcements, we will be looking more closely at the Scout Oath, break it down into pieces, and examine its meaning.  Scouts recite the Scout Oath at every meeting and begin it with "On my honor". Of course, the oath refers to honor in terms of fulfilling an obligation. When one reads the Scout Oath, you'll notice it is only separated by commas or semicolons, hence everything in the oath is tied back to the Scout. When the Scout says, "On my honor," he/she is pledging to honor all the actions embedded within the oath. Honor is a rather prestigious word and it is very fitting for it to be included in the Scout Oath.

Flag Day Ceremony at the Elks

Posted on Jun 5 2021 - 11:13pm

Good morning Pack 3179 Families,

Congratulations to all of our Scouts who bridged or achieved their rank in an unprecedented year.  You as parents deserve a lot of credit for motivating your Scout(s) to work harder, set goals, and achieve.  Although we begin summer vacations later this week, we still have plenty of events in the planning stage for the Summer, and the leaders will begin planning for next year this week.  We are in need of Scouts to help out the Flag Day Celebration at the Elks Lodge next Sunday, June 13th from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm.  We will need Scouts to display the colors and serve as the color guard for the event. If you are not leaving town on vacation and have no other plans, can you please make your Scout available to attend this event and sign up on the website?  You will earn credit for your June activity toward the Summertime Pack Award patch and help our charter organization.

Happy Memorial Day!
