“On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.” “As a Scout, it is my duty to help and serve others in my community,” says Zak Miller, age 11. Zak Miller is among the ten boy scouts serving in Troop 148. Zak states that “The Scout Law is to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.” The Scouts are working hard on their “Citizenship in The Community” badge. This badge is about taking responsibility in the community. The Scouts meet every Monday from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M. Junior Josh Weishapl, Life Scout and Troop Senior Patrol Leader, says, “My personal opinion on Scouts is that it’s very beneficial to young boys and now young girls. Scouting is also founded on good character ideology, which is huge for youths,” mentions Weishapl. The Scouts have a Slogan, which states to do a good turn daily. It means to do something to help others each day without expecting anything in return. To do your part to care for your community and the environment too. Even if you’re not involved in Scouting, everyone should live by this motto.
