Why Iím A Leader

York Adams Area Council


Iím not a Cub Scout Leader for the easy hours, high pay, parentsí gratitude, power or prestige.

Iím a leader because I want the world for your son and mine,

a world he can shape; a world of love and laughter,

where he can show compassion.


I want him to be able to look at the stars, a sunrise, a sunset,

the work and world of man -- and feel their beauty inside himself.


I want to help him to learn to finish anything he starts

and do it well and to guide him to know his worth

with a deeper understanding of himself.


I want to help shape men who have strength of character

and are sensitive to others.


I want them to be the best they can be.


Iím giving of myself and my time. I reap rewards far beyond what I give.

I receive for my children and future generations a better world.


I am a Cub Scout Leader because I care!


Tribute To A Volunteer
Circle 10 Council

The more you give, the more you get,

The more you laugh, the less you fret.

The more you do unselfishly,

The more you live abundantly.

The more of everything you share,

The more you find that others care.

The more you love, the more you'll find,

That life is good and friends are kind.

For only what we give away,

Enriches us from day to day.
