“The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (American, Poet, 1807-1882)

TIME:  9:42 AM
PLACE:  The Jeep
SUBJECT:  MonkeyBoy, Boy Scouts & food donations

As part of fulfilling their Boy Scout Promise to help other people at all times, MB’s Boy Scout troop participated in the annual Scouting for Food collection program.  Last weekend they distributed bags and this morning they collected the donations and delivered them to a local food pantry.  I helped by driving MB and 2 other Scouts around a section of the designated collection area for our troop.  The part the boys enjoyed the most?  Riding in the open hatchback of the Jeep and hopping on and off to collect the bags.
