An Inspirational Thought for Thanksgiving
This makes a nice Scoutmaster Minute or Cubmaster Minute or even just a good reflection for a family gathering at this time of year. This is based on something in some old BSA program helps.
For use with Cub Scouts, you might want to explain what a “good turn” is beforehand.
Thanksgiving Scoutmaster Minute
At Thanksgiving we always think of everything we are thankful for – friends, family, freedom, churches, schools, food. Not everyone gets everything they want, but everyone should be thankful for what they have.
And don’t forget that “giving” is a part of “Thanksgiving”. You might not be able to give money, but you can give time. You can give by doing your Good Turn every day – just don’t expect to be rewarded or paid. Help shovel a neighbor’s sidewalk. Visit an elderly person. Just do something simple like holding a door open for somebody. Whatever your Good Turn, don’t accept anything in return, except perhaps a “Thank you”.
So this Thanksgiving, really commit yourself to taking the time every day to “Do a Good Turn Daily”.
This is another Scoutmaster minute which focuses on being grateful.

Take some time to say “Thank You” to those who have helped you in Scouting. See how this Eagle Scout did it.
