Scouts appreciate help with benefit

Editor, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the world Scout movement, once said "a good turn will educate the boy out of the grove of selfishness." This is the foundation for the famous Boy Scouts of America Slogan: "Do a good turn daily."
There are over 4,000 Scouts in the Coastal Empire Council that promise to do their good turn on a daily basis. On March 29, many folks from the Hinesville and surrounding communities gave back to the Scouts that live by this slogan. For the fifth year, the Liberty District (which covers Liberty, Long, Bryan, Tattnall, and Toombs counties) held a fundraising golf tournament at the Cherokee Rose Country Club in Hinesville. Every year this event has grown, and even more and more is given back to Scouting. This year was no exception.
The number of individuals, businesses and community leaders that work to make this event a success are too many to list. A huge THANK YOU is definitely in order for the golfers, hole sponsors and numerous generous benefactors, who help to make this tournament the success that it is. Without the leadership of Dr. Glenn Carter and his office staff, the dedicated service of the Liberty District Scouting volunteers, the Push Hard Saw Mill, and the hospitality of the Cherokee Rose Country Club, none of it would be possible. So THANK YOU! Your selfless contributions have helped to ensure that the Scouting program is alive and well in your community.
Scouting programs are a valuable resource that can help families accomplish worthy goals while building and strengthening relationships within the family. Scouting combines fun with educational activities and lifelong values. It also helps parents to help their boys strengthen character, develop good citizenship, and enhance both mental and physical fitness. In addition, the program provides boys with positive peer groups and tools to shape their future. In Scouting, boys learn ideals like honesty, bravery and respect. These values help boys make constructive decisions throughout their lifetimes and give them the confidence they need to grow and develop.
Once again, thank you to everyone who contributed to this event, and we hope to see you again next year!

In Scouting,
Matt Jarrard
