The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) will partner to present an original production about the history and values of scouting. "A Century of Honor" commemorates the 100-year relationship between the Church and the BSA.
This event will be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 7014 Frankford, Lubbock, Texas. This event will involve the participation of Boy Scout Troops and Packs from all over Lubbock from all denominations and chartering organizations. There will be scouting displays, activities, a rock climbing wall, and more. There will be ice cream for all. At 8:00 p.m. there will be a special broadcast commemorating scouting. All are invited to attend, especially those associated with scouting.
On May 21, 1913, the Church became the first nationally chartered organization to affiliate with the Boy Scouts of America, based on a mutual interest in helping boys and young men understand and live their duty to God. Over the past 100 years, countless young men have participated in Boy Scouts through Church-sponsored troops.
"We are pleased to be celebrating this 100th anniversary with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," said Wayne Brock, chief scout executive, Boy Scouts of America. The Church was the Boy Scouts of America's first sponsor in 1913, and a century later remains dedicated to the Scouting movement. We thank the Church for their commitment to our mission and join with the rest of the Scouting family to celebrate the immeasurable impact it has had on our nation's youth as we look forward to our ongoing relationship."
