Scout is Helpful - Doing A Good Turn

by Gary Knapp
Scout Master Troop 745, for the Alamo Area BSA: November 18, 2014 

I'm proud to receive communications from the greater SA community like the one recently emailed to me from a Mrs. Van Cleave.  She had the good fortune of experiencing a 'Good Turn' and finding one of our Boy Scouts living the Scout law - A Scout Is Helpful.  Here is here email:

"Dimitri was of great help to me today. I have Parkinson's Disease, and had not taken my medicine on time so I was having trouble walking as I pushed my grocery basket.

Dimitri was wearing his Boy Scout shirt, so I asked if he could find a store employee to help me. He was ready to help, and did so.

What a fine young man he is, and what a fine adult he's going to be.

Thank you, Dimitri,
Mrs. Van Cleave"
