The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 (Scouting Anniversary Day) as Scout Sunday, which is the primary date to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting. However, each chartered organization can use either of two other options to celebrate this special day.
The Scout units are urged to participate in the religious services. Scout Sunday is an opportunity for units can attend services in uniform, conduct a flag ceremony, speak about Scouting, present religious awards and/or formally thank the chartering organization for their support throughout the year, reserve pews, take an active participation in the service such as a prayer, request a notice in the church bulletin. Consider having a recruiting information table in the foyer or hospitality area. A Scout is Reverent.
This Year Scout Sunday was celebrated on February 4th 2018. Scouts met at the church at 11 am. Boys wore their scout uniforms. Few spoke about their Scouting experience during the service. After the service, the boys sold baked goods as a fundraiser for the Troop. Donations were given on a volunteer basis – i.e.we didn’t price the baked goods. The church members were very generous in donating to our Troop. Boys were very excited that they made a collection of 415.40 chf!!
