To kick off the new year, today we embarked on a new adventure with many new bridging ceremonies. We had cub scouts move on to boy scouts, boy scouts graduate to venturing scouts, and perhaps the biggest move up all was to welcome our girls scouts to the larger Scouting movement. Many new boys and girls took on leadership roles and continue to grow each and every day with LDBD.
Happy New Year LDBD! Welcome to the first meeting of 2019. We hope everyone enjoyed a brief holiday break. We're excited to kick off the new year with a ton of new and exciting scouting adventures.
Today was a special occasion and milestone for LDBD. We celebrated our first Eagle Scout Court of Honor. Five extraordinary young men joined the elite group of Scouts who have earned Scouting Highest Achievement and Rank. It took a great deal of work, perseverance,leadership, and commitment to get here. Of course, this was not just an individual effort, but required the help from family, friends, fellow scouts, and leaders. Congratulations to Danny, Cory, Nam, William, and Thanh on earning their Eagle Scout and we look forward to their ongoing Scouting journey as they look for ways to give back to the scouting movement.
The Holidays brought us together for a wonderful party full of amazing performances by all of our units. Food and drink was plentiful and delicious. Mr and Mrs Claus made an appearance - let's remind Mrs Claus to shave next year. The Photo booth delivered us some funny memories. What a fantastic way to wrap up our Scouting Year!
