A Century of Values nationwide road tour is coming to Fargo on Wednesday, September 23, 2009. Six adult Scouting volunteers from the State of Michigan will visit the Northern Lights Council to kick-off the celebrations of 100 years of Scouting’s role in helping to create and maintain traditional American values.
The road journey started in Laingsburg, Michigan February 8 and will end February 8, 2010, in Irving, Texas, at the National Boy Scout Museum. Fourteen teams will rotate driving the 45,000 miles in a specially designed and decorated 32-foot RV making more than 300 stops across the United States.
The teams are celebrating Scouting’s 100th Anniversary by thanking local Scout volunteers and leaders of yesterday, today and tomorrow for service to youth. The Century of Values team will present the Northern Lights Council a special commemorative color mural. The mural was created by Eagle Scout and professional illustrator Bill Morrison. Morrison, a Michigan native, honed is artistic talents as part of the team that created “The Simpsons.” Morrison spent three years researching Scouting’s history, people, and programs to develop this special mural.
The Century of Values welcome and presentation will be at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday in Island Park across from the Boy Scout office located at 301 7th Street South in Fargo. Stop by, say hello and thank the Michigan volunteers for their dedication to the Scouting movement. For more information, contact the Boy Scout office at 877-293-5011.
