Show your gratitude for Community Helpers
Our church from where we lived before was an interesting group of people. More often than not, there were mamas with children in tow, but daddy wasn’t there. At first glance you’d think he might not be the church going type, but once you got to know these families we discovered those daddys were anything but. They were heroes. A larger portion of our congregation was made up of Firemen! These firefighters spent their weekend on guard protecting our community and keeping everyone safe from harm.
While I grew up during the time after my daddy retired from the U.S. Air Force I’m proud to know he served for many years as did my father-in-law. And I have a brother-in-law that is the U.S. Navy. Also from where we live now, we are surrounded by a large Navy community.
All these past experiences and our goals with the Frontier Girls and scouting has made us very aware of promoting patriotism in our girls, and one day for the Rascal as well with the likes of a possible Frontiersmen Troop. If you know me, you know that I love my genealogy and the fact that we are Patriots through the centuries makes me even more partial to not only military community leaders, but the every day Joes as well.
Community Leaders are important and definitely make an impact and it is important to teach our children about them!
