I serve as a Troop Committee & District Committee member and marvel at how this organization continues to make a difference by insuring that the young understand the Scout Law and the Scout Oath which will carry them thru ever more throughout their lives--being witness to history!! :-)
The Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America instills values, builds leadership skills, creates wonderful memories and provides positive role models and activities for our young people.
I see these characteristics reflected in the enthusiasm of every Scout I meet - especially those who have attained the rank of Eagle Scout.
