November and May are months that have significance to our Nation. Within May is Memorial Day and November contains Veteran’s Day. Patriotism is an important part of Trail Life, and we seek to instill in the young men a love of country. This November was no different, with the Troop honoring our veteran’s and serving our Church by helping to maintain our cemetery, giving special attention to the burial sites of our veterans.
The Trailmen had fun, the dry weather and doughnuts help. We all also have a special, stronger connection to the faithfully departed when we spend reverent time in the cemetery.
One notable aspect of this event was that a Navigator was responsible to organizing and running this event. As these young men grow and mature, they are taking more and more ownership of our Troop!
