GIVE THANKS FOR PHILMONT
November 28, 2013, Thanksgiving Day, provides a special occasion for those who love Philmont Scout Ranch to pause, reflect, and give thanks. Seventy-five years ago on November 28, 1938, Waite Phillips made his first gift of land, later to become Philmont Scout Ranch, to the Boy Scouts of America.
To commemorate this extraordinary act of generosity, it is requested that Scouts and Scouters recite the Philmont Grace as a remembrance of this incredible gift.
At 1 p.m. on November 28, 2013 – wherever you might be – please find a way, and a place, to quiet your heart and join Philmont veterans across the land in giving thanks for a gift that enriches our lives in ways we could never have imagined.
THE PHILMONT GRACE
We thank Thee, O Lord.
