2nd 100 Days of Scouting: Day 82

Painting Merit Badge

Scouting happens in the strangest places and ways.

I'm at the 111th Virginia Knights of Columbus State Convention, and Scouting keeps popping up.  The Knights of Columbus have encouraged Scouting, sponsoring a unit as early as 1913.  They recognized Scouting for sharing the values that the Knights consider important--family, duty, God and country.

We'll wrap up in the morning, and I can't help but wonder how Scouting will get mixed in for the third day in a row.

Today I:
  • Voted on a resolution to encourage the establishment of a Scouting service award for fellow Knights.
  • Discussed helping another Knights of Columbus council in a town in my Scouting district establish their own units.
  • Entered Scout parent phone numbers into my cell phone--a long overdue task.
It is great to see the organizations you belong to support each other.  Even greater to find some opportunity for each of them in the other.  Greatest of all will be to bring the ideas to fruition!
