A Friend Flag Ceremony
Trapper Trails Council
Many of us have heard the
old saying, "A friend in need is a friend indeed. "Our country is often the friend who helps us in need.
Immigrants coming to America find helpful neighbors and useful
programs to make their move easier.
As Americans we have many
rights and privileges. Our
system of government provides schools, libraries, roads, and other services
to make our lives better.
Along with these rights and
privileges comes obligations. America needs us to be her friend.
As Cub Scouts we can be America' s friend through service.
As we now stand and pledge allegiance to the flag, let's remember how
America is our friend.
