Following lunch, President Greg Owens introduced our guest speaker Anne Herriage. She discovered that most of the attendees were involved in Scouting at one time, and was pleased that we begin our meetings by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. She noted that people involved in Scouting know the responsibilities of citizenship, and the importance of patriotism. She asked those in the audience who were involved in Scouting to recite the Boy Scout Oath:
On my honor, I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
She also had them recite the Scout Law:
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.
