The motto of the Boy Scouts of America is: “Do a Good Turn Daily.” their law reads, “A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.” Their Oath says, “On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to obey the Scout law, to help other people at all times, and to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. It pretty well says the same thing; just fewer words but much easier for a Boy Scout to remember. If you can’t remember all of the first, maybe you can memorize and practice the words the Boy Scouts live by . . .

(The time of the sale will be announced as soon as the garage at the Scout Cabin is full – probably in the early spring.)

Have a garage sale last fall and don’t know what to do with all the ‘leftovers’? Are you still sorting through all the stuff Aunt Judy left you in her will, attic, basement, and closets? Did someone give you a gift at the last ‘white elephant’ party you attended and you want to get rid of it? Got a garage/basement/attic you want emptied of its contents? Want to get rid of old toys, tools, cooking utensils, furniture, etc. after Christmas to make room for the new stuff? Move and haven’t unpacked all the boxes and don’t know what’s in them and haven’t missed the stuff? Don’t open them; call Troop 44.

The leaders said they are willing to come to your house to pick up your donations. You may drop off your donations at the Scout Cabin but you must call first and arrange for someone to meet you there. Please don’t drop anything off in front of the door; it will only get wet or be stolen. Call and have someone meet you there PLEASE. Take a FREE tour of the Boy Scout Cabin while you’re there.

“Don’t throw it out; call a Boy Scout” better yet, call Assistant Scoutmaster Jack Shepard at 436-2422, for a ‘free’ pickup.
