             34      General Description:
             35          This concurrent resolution of the Legislature and the Governor recognizes the 100th
             36      Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.

             37      Highlighted Provisions:
             38          This resolution:
             39          .    recognizes the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America and expresses
             40      appreciation for the service and character building that the organization has
             41      provided through its dedication to the youth of Utah.
             42      Special Clauses:
             43          None
             45      Be it resolved by the Legislature of the state of Utah, the Governor concurring therein:
             46          WHEREAS, in 1909, a Chicago publisher named William Boyce became lost in a
             47      London fog and found his way out of it with the aid of a young boy, and when he tried to pay
             48      the boy a schilling for his help, the boy replied that a Scout doesn't take payment for "doing a
             49      good turn";
             50          WHEREAS, Boyce, who had never heard of Scouts, was so intrigued that he learned
             51      all about the British program and when he returned to America, he helped create the Boys
             52      Scouts of America (BSA);
             53          WHEREAS, founded as an outlet to prepare eligible youth in America to become
             54      participating citizens and leaders, the BSA has more than fulfilled its mission;
             55          WHEREAS, since its founding, the Boy Scouts of America has been at the forefront of
             56      instilling timeless values in youth;
             57          WHEREAS, today, the Boy Scouts of America is the largest youth service organization
             58      in America, with nearly 3 million members learning responsible citizenship, character
             59      development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities,
             60      educational programs, and career-oriented programs in partnership with community
             61      organizations;
             62          WHEREAS, the 100th Anniversary is the nucleus around which the BSA can rally to
             63      strengthen scouting in every town and city throughout the nation;
             64          WHEREAS, this national youth movement has made serving others through its

             65      values-based program its mission;
             66          WHEREAS, scouting in Utah is served by the Trapper Trails Council, headquartered
             67      in Ogden, serving youth from Logan to Kaysville; the Great Salt Lake Council, headquartered
             68      in Salt Lake City, serving youth from Kaysville to Herriman; and the Utah National Parks
             69      Council, headquartered in Orem, serving youth from Lehi to St. George;
             70          WHEREAS, the BSA's purpose is simple: to build the character and integrity of
             71      America's youth and prepare them to become responsible adults who are leaders and who
             72      participate in society according to the Scout Oath and Law;
             73          WHEREAS, the mission of the BSA is to prepare youth to make ethical and moral
             74      choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law;
             75          WHEREAS, the Oath and Law are founded on trustworthiness, loyalty, bravery, and on
             76      values that put community and family first;
             77          WHEREAS, the Scout Oath teaches duty to God, country, and self;
             78          WHEREAS, the twelve points of the Scout Law, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly,
             79      courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent, describe how to live a
             80      life of honor;
             81          WHEREAS, this familiar list is more than just the description of a Scout -- it is the
             82      epitome of a volunteer;
             83          WHEREAS, the Scout Slogan, "Do a Good Turn Daily," stems from how American
             84      Scouting came to be and continues to be centric to the overall program because it gives every
             85      Scout a chance to serve others;
             86          WHEREAS, the BSA celebrates this legacy as it reaffirms its commitment to inspire
             87      and prepare future generations of leaders;
             88          WHEREAS, scouting has brought families and communities together for 100 years to
             89      prepare America's youth to live, work, and play with character and integrity;
             90          WHEREAS, scouting is as vital and relevant today as it was when it was originally
             91      founded;
             92          WHEREAS, the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the BSA is a once-in-a-lifetime

             93      opportunity to raise awareness of the value of scouting and engage more youth and volunteers
             94      in scouting activities;
             95          WHEREAS, in 2006, the BSA conducted a study on the values of Americans -- a
             96      Study of Ethics and Character -- which showed that scouting continues to make a positive
             97      impact on the lives of youth;
             98          WHEREAS, Scouts show higher self confidence, leadership skills, and a greater
             99      interest in helping others than youth who are not Scouts;
             100          WHEREAS, today, more than ever, America needs volunteers to address the issues
             101      youth and families face today, such as hunger, inadequate shelter, and poor health, by
             102      developing a strong sense of personal mission and purpose, and showing a great interest in
             103      helping others;
             104          WHEREAS, the Boy Scouts of America is committed to helping millions of youth
             105      succeed by providing the support, friendship, and mentoring necessary to live a happy and
             106      fulfilling life;
             107          WHEREAS, Utah's three Boy Scout Councils, consisting of 14,794 scout units, are
             108      celebrating Scouting's 100th anniversary with the theme "Celebrating the Adventure,
             109      Continuing the Journey"; and
             110          WHEREAS, in Utah, more than 91,000 volunteer leaders help make scouting
             111      adventures possible for more than 197,000 youth members who participate in the scouting
             112      program:
             113          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Legislature of the state of Utah, the
             114      Governor concurring therein, recognize the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America
             115      and express their appreciation for the service and character building that the organization has
             116      provided through its dedication to the youth of Utah.
             117          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Boy Scouts
             118      of America, the Trapper Trails Council, the Great Salt Lake Council, and the Utah National
             119      Parks Council.
