When Boy Scouts go to camp or volunteer at service projects, they look “uniform”. The term not only means a shirt or other items of clothing that matches everyone else in the group, but also comes from looking similar to everyone else so that no member stands out. Each member is no better than any other member, they look “uniform”.
The Scouts of Troop 944 in Roscommon will now appear “uniform” with the help of a $295.00 grant from the Roscommon County Kellogg Youth Fund which is administered by the Roscommon County Community Foundation, upon the recommendation of the Youth Advisory Council (YAC).The grant was used to help purchase customized T-shirts for Troop 944.
The Roscommon Troop will be celebrating their 70th anniversary this fall serving the youth in Roscommon County. The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law, which emphasizes character building, patriotism and a clean life style.
