Today's Boy Scouts -- Tomorrow's Phoenixmasons

Brothers, many of us were Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts in our youth and many of us are Boy Scout Leaders today. As many of us know, a Boy Scout does his best to live by the Scout Law

TRUSTWORTHY
A Scout tells the truth. He keeps his promises. Honesty is part of his code of conduct. People can depend on him.

LOYAL
A Scout is true to his family, Scout leaders, friends, school, and nation.

HELPFUL
A Scout is concerned about other people. He does things willingly for others without pay or reward.

FRIENDLY
A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He seeks to understand others. He respects those with ideas and customs other than his own.

COURTEOUS
A Scout is polite to everyone regardless of age or position. He knows good manners make it easier for people to get along together.

KIND
A Scout understands there is strength in being gentle. He treats others as he wants to be treated. He does not hurt or kill harmless things without reason.

OBEDIENT
A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobey them.

CHEERFUL
A Scout looks for the bright side of things. He cheerfully does tasks that come his way. He tries to make others happy.

THRIFTY
A Scout works to pay his way and to help others. He saves for unforeseen needs. He protects and conserves natural resources. He carefully uses time and property.

BRAVE
A Scout can face danger even if he is afraid. He has the courage to stand for what he thinks is right even if others laugh at or threaten him.

CLEAN
A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean. He goes around with those who believe in living by these same ideals. He helps keep his home and community clean.

REVERENT
A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.

What can you as an individual Phoenixmason do to help our children in Scouting?

1. Volunteer to be a Scout Leader. Without adult leadership there can be no Boy Scouts. There is a variety of jobs--everything from unit leaders to chairmen of troop committees, committee members, merit badge counselors, and chartered organization representatives.

2. Sponsor an individual boy for his uniform and/or expense to attend Boy Scout summer camp.

3. Support "Scouting for Food" and other fund raising efforts of Boy Scouts. To learn more about Boy Scouting, or to find out how to start, join, or support a troop, contact the BSA council in your area. To find your local BSA Council, click on the Boy Scout emblem below.
