The Difference 20 Minutes Can Make


--by destinydelange, posted Aug 8, 2014
Last Tuesday, a group of cub masters and I spent time teaching a troop of boy scouts about recycling and reusing items. We then spent some time cleaning up around the meeting house and surrounding areas. It was a great experience for the boys because in 20 short minutes, they saw how much of an impact they could have in their world. A gas station owner even came out to thank them and tell them how much he appreciated their efforts.
