Great day for Scouting in City of Brownsville, TX - Municipal Government. Today marked the 72nd annual Scout government day! This event is in collaboration with the Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas, City of Brownsville, Brownsville Independent School District and our Biy Scout council. Scouts met in advance to vote in a mayor, commissioners and city manager. These elected officials then reviewed submitted applications from Girl Scouts and Scouts BSA to select positions like Fire Chief, City Attorney and the list goes on and on. Today these scouts assumed the role they were appointed for and learned how the Great City of Brownsville Texas is run. Thank you to Mayor John Cowen, Commissioner Tino Villereal and City Manager Helen Ramirez and those who took the time to show the Scouts how our great City is Run! #leadership #oppurtunites #onecity ...

A Scout is Reverent! Today, we celebrate Scout Sunday and the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting, and the strong bond between Scouting and our faith. This day is a special opportunity to recognize those involved in the ministry and invite others to join. Scout Sunday is a time to reflect on the 12th point of the Scout Law: A Scout is Reverent. This reverence is not just for the Sabbath or Holy Day of your faith, but every day. Let's use this day to spread the word about Scout Sunday, thank our congregation for their support, and invite others to join us in faith and fellowship. We want to highlight the Chaplain program at Philmont Scout Ranch, a unique opportunity for young adults and Scouters to participate in a faith-based experience. This program allows participants to become closer to their faith while participating in Philmont programs. Happy Scout Sunday to all, and a special shout out to our Chaplains at Philmont Scout Ranch for their dedication and service. As we celebrate Scout Sunday, let's remember to live fully the twelfth point of the Scout Law, and make every day a new discovery about God, about ourselves, about our relationship with our fellow Scouts, and about God’s magnificent creation. 📷: Danielle Ballantine MPS’24 #HOmE, #Exploring, #Scouting, #Scouts, #BePrepared, #BSA, #ChangeLives, #BoyScoutsofAmerica, #PSR, #ScoutsBSA, #Venturing, #Philmont, #PhilmontScoutRanch, #IWGBTP, #ToothofTime, #outdoor, #trekking, #outdoorlife, #trek, #camper, #campinglife, #outdooradventures, #adventuretravel, #camplife, #ScoutSunday, #Sunday, #Reverent, #Faith, #Blessings ...
