Doing good turns is one of the many benefits that our Cub Scouts learn while being in the program.  They realize the joy of working and giving to their community when they are together.  One good turn I like to suggest is having a Cub Garden, planted with vegetables, and even flowers.  Once the crops are grown, washing the veggies and taking them to a local shelter will teach the Cubs an important lesson in helping those less fortunate than they.  Fresh flowers can be cut and taken to local Residents/Nursing homes.

July can be a fun time for Cub Scouting.  The weather is warm and America is full of history and celebration.  Use this month and theme to help the boys see what a great country we live in and how greatly blessed they are to live where they do.

You can take the boys to places in your area that are historic to our country or state.  Talk why these places are important to your city and ultimately to America.

This is a good month to fulfill the requirements in their book that pertain to the flag or community.  Teach them proper respect for the flag and why we should show that respect.  Teach them the proper way to fold the flag and the proper way to conduct a flag ceremony.  These things can be found in the boys’ books and also in the leader guide.

I have never worked in a paying job with Scouters’.  Therefore no one I work with knows or uses the Bugle.  Which is alright I guess.  But now I would like to show my co-workers what Scouters’ can do in friendship for another Scouter me.  I am again asking for your help.  As you know I work for the Thrifty Nickel in Huntsville. AL.  PLEASE visit our home page at http://www.thriftynickelads.com/dsp_paper_home.cfm?paperid=1099  That’s right, all I asking is for you to go in and look at our home page in Huntsville.  That’s all. Just a simple click from above, no buying just a click a visit in other words.  Pretty please.

I am still looking for some “personal” type help.  I do National Sales, placing both classified and display advertising in over 120 papers and I have had SUCCESS—I have or will as of June 1st be placing an ad for Linda, (Hey Linda M., Viking Council) my Wood Badge antelope buddy.  (ANTELOPES RULE!)  If you or anyone you know has a home based business, works for an ad agency, or a corporation that has advertising needs have them call me, Chris at Thrifty Nickel at 1-866-533-4285.
