Fox Valley: Scouts to host Scout Sunday on Feb. 3

Scout Sunday, 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. “Duty to God is an integral part of the Scouting program,” said Matthew Ackerman, Scout Executive for the St. Charles-based Three Fires Council. “We encourage every Scout and Leader to participate in a service according to their custom.”

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. The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before Feb. 8 as Scout Sunday, which this year is Sunday, Feb. 3. Feb. 8, 1910 was the founding of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).
