Cub Scout Community Service


This is a picture of my cub scout Dakota, he is 7 years old and LOVES being a part of cub scouts. Well what we did today was really special for these boys. We went to one of the BIG parks here and did some community service. We brought rakes and trash bags and the boys picked up the big sticks and all kinds of trash while me and the other moms raked up the smaller sticks into BIG piles so the park workers could mow without hitting all the sticks. It was a HUGE job but the boys were so very proud that they had done something that was going to help the workers and make the park look nicer. While we were there the boys went to the pavilion to check for trash and sticks and there was a family setting up for a wedding reception so they were so excited that they got to clean up around there for them so the reception would look even nicer. There was a TON of trash around the pavilion and those boys worked really hard but when we got done they stepped back and said wow it looks really nice here now and this family doesn't have to do it. You could see the pride on thier faces. I am proud of all my boys. Travis with his baseball and football, Cody with his baseball and soccer and Austin for just being a cool kid due to the fact that he is to young for sport but there is something special about my Dakota. He is such a bright child and loves to help and know that he did something good even though he doesn't always get a thank you or any recagnition for his work. He has such a great outlook on life. I am one proud cub scout mommy.

Thank you Dakota!

As an Eagle Scout, I'm proud of what you and your pack did today. Sometimes, just doing the right thing is its own reward - which I'm sure you got for doing this - but let me salute you and say thanks for a job well done.

With all you have to do, Jewelz, I'm amazed you have time to blog! :) Thank you too!

The way I see it I need to enjoy the time I have with my family while I am here and I can sleep when i die. LOL (pray to God that isn't for a long time) LOL

Great job, Dakota. I'm glad he enjoys helping people, even without thanks. The world needs more people like that.

Way to go Dakota!!!!

That sounds like a lot of hard work and I'm not surprised at all that Dakota proudly stuck with it. That is just the kind of kid he is.

I'm mighty proud of my grandson, Dakota.
