Bob Shanahan Chairs the 2020 Salute to Scouting Community Breakfast
Bob Shanahan has agreed to chair the 2020 Salute to Scouting Community Breakfast, to be held on Thursday, March 12, at the Mountainview Chalet in Asbury, New Jersey. The gathering starts at 7:00 a.m. and will end promptly at 8:45 a.m.
The breakfast is held annually to support the mission of the Washington Crossing Council, BSA, which covers all of Hunterdon County. Scouting instructs youths to value community service, citizenship and themselves. This time tested, character-building program teaches leadership skills, social responsibility and solid moral values that last a lifetime. These skills and values are essential, not only to the youths themselves but to the future of our community.
Hunterdon County Sheriff Brown
The speaker at the breakfast will be Hunterdon County Sheriff, Fred Brown. Sheriff Brown has supported Scouting in the past and has been an honoree of the district’s Citizen of the Year.
Bob Shanahan volunteered to run the breakfast meeting again this year because of his personal belief in the good that Scouting does for the community. An Eagle Scout himself, and a former Scoutmaster of Troop 121 in Clinton, Bob believes that the Scouting program is one of the last places that a young man or woman can practice leadership and make mistakes. Most learning is done by making mistakes and correcting them. Run correctly, Scout Troops are run by the Scouts themselves which builds socialization, leadership and tolerance. The need to act responsibly with good moral values is installed throughout the program. As a member of the community and as a business owner, Bob believes that this program is essential to today’s youth.
