Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –
“Keeping my paws on the nuts of the world!”
February 8th is Boy Scout Day that celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America.
Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts offer a tremendous valuable program of life skills and values for millions of boys. It has been popular since Lord Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in the early 1900′s in Great Britain. The top award of Eagle Scout is an accomplishment that reaps recognition, rewards and benefits for a young man throughout his life.
The Boy Scout motto is Be Prepared; however, the Boy Scout slogan is “Do a good turn daily.”

I just looked it up – that is the Girl Scout motto

Which one? Be Prepared? Or the other? Be prepared is on every BSA piece of memorabilia I own. Just saying.

Cool… Just remember, Google is your friend. I write a lot of things I’m told on the streets. I always check twice.
