Community Service/Land Stewardship Day

Posted on May 22 2014 - 5:41pm

November 15, 2014

The Sam Houston Area Council is celebrating a "Century of Service" in 2014. To commemorate this milestone, we will host a Community Service / Land Stewardship Day and log-in more than 100,000 hours of service across the 16 1/2 counties we serve.  Troops, Packs, Crews, Ships and Teams can perform a service project for their chartered organization, participate in an Eagle Scout project, perform community service or be involved in a larger Land Stewardship project. The Sam Houston Area Council will also be reaching out to organizations in our area, notifying them of this day of service and encourage them to recommend projects in which units can participate.

Service projects that are eligible for this day of service are similar to those that a unit would perform at any other time. Food drives, clothing drives, service projects at schools or churches, Eagle Scout projects, park projects, etc. would all be acceptable projects. We also encourage units to involve churches or schools other groups to participate with their service project. All of those members hours will also count as part of the service hours for that day. Only service hours performed on November 15, 2014 will count for that day, even if the project takes several days to complete.

Participants will earn the fourth segment in the Century of Service patch.

He is trying obtain information from the district units on how many units presented Religious awards on ScoutSunday as well as the number of boys received the award.
