Moment #39: The spirit of service . . .

Posted: October 05, 2011

Today, October 5, is "Do Something Nice Day." Throughout history, camps have understood the value of service whatever the date may be.

For example, did you know that after serving as crowd control at President Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration in 1913, the Boy Scouts have maintained a tradition of serving in some way at presidential inaugurations to this day?

Did you know that throughout the years, Girls Scouts have undertaken initiatives to better the world, such as breaking down racial prejudices, helping Vietnamese refugee children adapt to their new circumstances, and creating a "Global Understanding" project focused on health care, hunger, literacy, natural resources, and cultural heritage?

What does your camp do in the spirit of service? Let us know how you and your camp make "Do Something Nice Day" a common occurance!
