Thank you for the clarification for (Boy) Scout Sunday for the United
Methodist Churches. You are absolutely correct. I should have mentioned this
modification in my original posting, especially since our Troop is chartered
to a United Methodist Church!!!

FYI, March 12th is Girl Scout Anniversary (or Birthday)! Girl Scout
Anniversary Week is March 10th through March 16th. I believe Girl Scout
Sunday is March 10th, and Girl Scout Sabbath is March 16th.
Regardless of the dates that these are celebrated, it is probably more
important that they be celebrated some time during the year, regardless of
what date is actually used. I am sure that local conditions and
circumstances may dictate changes with the above dates, and that should
always be okay. IMHO, it is far better to celebrate on an alternate date,
than not to celebrate at all.
There is a Scout Sunday Observance BSA publication, and a Scout Sabbath BSA
publication (#15-208), available for those needing help or ideas with the
services. Check with your local District Executive or Council Office.
