As families come together near and far to celebrate with food and fellowship while counting their many blessings, we would like to take this opportunity, too, to wish our Pack 1910 family a Happy Thanksgiving.
The first Thanksgiving was a celebration of the culmination of a successful partnership and harvest between different groups of people and was a further testimony that people of all creeds can live in harmony.
So, this Thanksgiving, we give thanks to children of all beliefs who have joined into the brotherhood of Scouting for the purpose of the greater good. We are united in a common purpose to be a different breed of person... the leaders of the future.
Thankful are we for the opportunities presented to us through the Scouting movement and the ability to serve our chartered organization, our community, our family, our unit and our country.
Thankful are we for the opportunity to Do A Good Turn Daily by acts of selfless service to those in our family, school and community.
Thankful are we for the blessings of leaders and volunteers who give of their time and their many talents to lead these boys with purpose.
Thankful are we for the bright-eyed enthusiasm as we witness young men take on greater responsibilities and meet challenges they didn't know they could overcome.
Thankful are we for the freedom afforded to all Americans and for those who are willing to fight for it... whatever the cost.
Thankful are we to not get everything we want, but to continue to be grateful for what we have.
Thankful are we for the partnership with nature and the outdoors as we learn to live in harmony with our earth and protect it for the generations that will follow.
Thankful are we for the gift of a merciful and gracious God that hears our prayers. Oh great Scoutmaster of all, please be with all of our Pack families until we can join together again.
Until that time... Happy Thanksgiving one and all!
