Why Iím A Leader
Hudson Valley Council
Iím not a Cub Scout Leader for the easy hours,
parentsí gratitude, power or prestige.
Iím a leader because I want the world for your
son and mine,
I want it to be a world he can shape and help
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
I want to help him to learn to finish anything he
starts and do it well.
I want 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 the needs of 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.

how we say it. Dale Carnegie

Communication is a two-way
street. And while we revel in the reality that we can always get through to
heaven, our concern should be whether our Lord can always get through to us.
I am only one ..
From Edward Everett Hale:
"I am only
one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something;
and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can
do. " The key to accomplishment is believing that what you can do will make a

We pray Thee now to bless our food. Amen
