Scout Sunday is an annual event meant to mark the founding of Scouts in the United States. While the Boy Scouts of America has designated the Sunday preceding February 8th, or February 8th if it is a Sunday, as Scout Sunday; observance varies by unit and locale. On this day scouts go to their places of worship or chartering organization, if it is a religious institution, in uniform and represent scouting at the service.
It is also a day in which scouts of all faiths recognize the good work done by scouts in their religious communities and through the religious communities that sponsor their unit. For many religious organizations Scouting is the community outreach program of choice for youth and Scout Sunday is a day to give back and allow the members of the institution to meet the scouts and their leaders and allow the parents of the scouts to meet the community and members of the organization that allows us to meet.
This Scout Sunday, not only will our attendance and participation be a great showing for the Saints United Lutheran Church, our chartering organization — The organization has allowed us to use the opportunity as a fundraiser. We ask that all scouts, regardless of faith, participate in this event by coming out to represent your unit, in uniform, as well as helping out at the fundraiser.
Additionally we ask that you spread the word to all your friends and family to come on out and attend the fundraiser (flier attached below).
The schedule of events is as follows:
Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, and coffee or juice for $5.00 per person. Pancakes are all you can eat!!!
*Scouts who attend the service eat for half price. Scouts who put in a significant work effort for the fundraiser will eat for free afterwards and earn service hours!
