The Boy Scout annual pancake breakfast, held Saturday, April 16 from 7-10 a.m. at the United Methodist Temple on Main Street in Russellville was a success. This is the largest fundraiser held by Troop 303 and Pack 303 under the sponsorship of the United Methodist Temple.
The Temple men cooked sausage and pancakes for those who purchased a ticket for $4. Also served was milk, orange juice and coffee. There was good food, good fellowship and a good cost for a good cause.
About 10 boys and their leaders helped with the breakfast. The money raised is used for registration, paying for camps, scholarships and equipment.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
For more than a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes- and, through over a century of experience, knows- that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
Scouting provides unique, life-changing experiences youth can’t get anywhere else. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
