Closing Thoughts

Forest Witcraft is credited with writing a little poem called A Hundred Years from Now

It goes like this:

A hundred Years from now,
It will not matter what my bank account was,
The sort of house I lived in,
Or the kind of car I drove.
But, the world may be different,
Because I was important in the life of a boy.
This is the driving force behind Scouting.

Since 1910 when scouting was started in the US, millions of boys from all walks of life have been introduced to scouting, by parents just like you. You’ve taken the first step in ensuring that your son will grow up the way you want him to by signing him up in Scouting, so I thank you, and even though he doesn’t know it yet, he thanks you.
