Scout Sunday, February 4, 2018

2018 Scout Sunday patches are available from Hank Voegtle (214-769-5040) at no cost on a first come, first served basis, although only 100 are available. This year’s patch is the third in a series based on stained glass windows in St. Luke United Methodist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. The patch represents an Explorer from the period of 1958-1970 kneeling in prayer. At the bottom, there is the “Circle-V” logo that was used in Exploring during that period. That logo had meaning: “the general impression of movement and speed is intended, and the design is meant to be dynamic.  The V in the center is symbolic of Explorer's growth and progress.  The two prisms representing his duty to self and fellowmen.  As these merge, they point to infinity, symbolic of his duty to God.  The circles represent the Explorer's environment or surroundings: his home, school, community, and Nation. The colors of the circles remind him of his American heritage.”
