100 Years of Boy Scouts of America

BSA

This week marks the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. Congratulations to one of our country's strongest and longest running organizations.

It was was founded by Chicago publisher William Boyce on February 8, 1910.

The Boy Scouts of America was designed to teach young men of our country how to be great contributing members of our society. They continue to accomplished this through organized activities such as camping; fishing; hiking and an endless list of other outdoor events. They help to educate the boys through community events as well. You will find it hard to find an area or a weekend where there are no Boy Scout troops doing some sort of project or fundraiser for the community. The Boy Scouts continue to teach young men skills necessary to succeed and plan for college through academic programs and scholarships.

Countless young men have learned about honesty; integrity; trustworthyness; good citizenship and the importance of helping other people. This has been done with great success. The Boy Scouts of America have produce great leaders and thinkers in our world.

  • Henry "Hank" Aaron
  • Neil Armstrong
  • Michael Bloomberg
  • Gerald Ford (1st Eagle Scout to be President)
  • Oswald "Ozzie" Nelson
  • Jim Mora
  • Donald Rumsfeld
  • Steven Spielberg
  • John Tesh
  • The list goes on and on.....

So, today, let's give thanks to the Boy Scouts of America for what they have done and for those they have helped to shaped. If you have ever helped or currently help out - THANKS! If not, next time you see a Boy Scout, do what you can. Buy some popcorn or offer your time. You can help to form our future.

Thanks for the reminder of this great organization's founding.  I have lot's of great memories of my days in Scouting and being an adult leader when my two boys were in Scouts.

I didn't realize that the Boy Scouts had been around for so long.  Congratulations to the Boy Scouts.
