November Core Value - Citizenship

The Core Value for the month of November is CITIZENSHIP.

Citizenship is taught to Cub Scouts by allowing them to contribute in community service events and by allowing them opportunities to show responsibility to local, state, and
national communities.  Cub Scouts develop good citizenship when they are learning about respecting the flag.

I hope everyone took their Cub Scouts with them to exercise their number one civic duty as an adult -- and let them see you involved when you vote!

As citizens of the United States of America, we all have a responsibility to serve our country. Cub Scouts will learn ways to be better citizens while earning the Citizenship belt loop and pin.  Remember, these are something that can be earned at home and are done above and beyond den level activities.  Once you've completed the worksheets, present them to your den leader for entry into the ScoutTrack system.

Another opportunity to reinforce honoring the service our veterans have shown as citizens of our great country is to attend the Grapevine Veteran's Parade this Saturday at 9 a.m.  Encourage your Cub Scouts to wear their uniforms and look sharp.  Salute the flag properly as they pass.  For more information, visit their web page here.
