A big Thank You is due to “The Marietta Times” for recognizing Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts for their volunteer work. Scouts are always prepared to serve it is imbued in their Promise and Law. “The Marietta Times” on Wednesday, Aug. 19 printed a story with pictures of Girl Scout volunteers and their leaders of Black Diamond Girl Scout Council, refreshing the Kroger Wetlands and cleaning up the area of trash. One of their goals was to earn a Take Action Brownie Quest Badge. The participants were from kindergarten (Daisy Scouts) though the eighth grade (Cadette Scouts). Besides repainting the sign, they also picked up trash left by other individuals. In so doing they got out into fresh air and enjoyed camaraderie of other scouts.

On Aug. 22-23 in “The Marietta Times” there was a story, “Getting the job done.” It was about a Boy Scout – Will Yannitell, a Star Scout with Boy Scouts of Marietta Troop 207. He had seen that Gold Star Monument Park was in need of attention, so he sprayed the weeds as well as mulching some of the garden at the community center. What a laudable pursuit.

It is so refreshing to see our youngsters engaged in such noble deeds and our local newspaper supporting it.
