Service Projects Performed



Scouting was founded on the premise of doing a Good Turn daily. Community service is very important in the character-building process and, as Scouts, we have made the commitment to give back to our communities.
In  quotes from Robert Baden- Powell

"The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others."  and "The good turn will educate the boy out of the groove of selfishness."  Robert Baden-Powell
