Scout Sunday celebrates religious connection
Scout Sunday on Feb. 3, a yearly recognition of Scouts in their religious communities, is among the first of many events that Scouts will participate in this year. Each religious organization will recognize Scouts for their service to the community, loyalty to family, and reverence to their faith and country.
Scout Sunday will be observed in places of worship throughout DuPage, Kane, Kendall, and DeKalb counties for the Three Fires Council, Boy Scouts of America. Feb. 8, 1910, was the founding of the Boy Scouts of America.
