New Year’s Resolution. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? I hope some of you resolved to bring up your grades in school and be more helpful around your house. I’m sure your parents would be delighted with those resolutions. In Scouting, we make a resolution almost every time we meet. Each time we repeat the Scout Oath or Law we’re resolving to do our best to do our duty and to make ourselves the best we can be. I’m inclined to think that resolving to follow the Oath and Law are the most important resolutions you can make-now and in the time to come. So think, as we start the New Year, we ought to repeat the Oath and Law and think about what we’re saying.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
