Citizenship in the Community!

Two of our scouts, Isaac and Jacob W. (brothers) recently attended their local Secaucus, NJ council meeting (even though our troop is domiciled in Hackensack, the county seat of Bergen County, our boys come from many different neighboring communities).

Attendance at a public meeting is a key requirement for both Citizenship in the Community and Communications merit badges — both are required towards becoming recognized as an Eagle Scout.

To their surprise, they were called to the front of the meeting room at the beginning of Isaac and Jacob POAthe meeting and asked to lead all of the assembled adults in the Pledge of Allegiance — something they were prepared to do based on our standard troop meeting opening ceremony.

Also to their surprise, a reporter with camera managed to snap their picture and publish this in the local paper — http://secaucushomenews.com/#lightbox/0/

We’re very proud of our scouts, and we’re glad that the adults helped them along their trail to Eagle by encouraging them to do their duty.

From what I gather, their parents are pretty proud, too (as they ought to be!)
