Doing service projects is one way that Boy Scouts keep their promise “to help other people…” While a Scout should do his best to help other people every day, a service project is a bigger way to help people. While they’re giving service, they’re learning to work in service to others and do something that’s good for their community. A dad came by while William was working on his project and he was overwhelmed with appreciation for the Boy Scouts and this project. He said that every time he brings his young kids hiking along that trail they are afraid of the rickety little makeshift bridge that had been there for years. Problem solved. Well done William. Great choice!
