No Meeting Tonight – Turkey Recovery Day!

We hope that the entire Cub Scout Pack 1776 family had a Wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.  There is no meeting tonight, so kick up your feet, recover from overindulging in good eats, and contemplate all that we are thankful for.

Throughout the course of our lives it is often far easier to ask for favors than it is to give thanks.  When times are dark we often neglect the good we have to be thankful for.  Thanksgiving wasn’t really about Pilgrims, Indians, and turkey dinners; it was a day that was set aside so that we may reflect on all of the good bestowed upon our lives, because even in the darkest hour there is that ray of light to be thankful for despite it always being overlooked.
