Leaders call Boy Scout Encampment a success

June 30, 2013

The Rise up 2013 Boy Scout Encampment finished Saturday.
The encampment was a “resounding, unbelievable success,” said director David Smith. “Everyone had a great time, from the action centers through the family history center.
“Dr. Seuss had it right when he said, ‘It was beyond Z,’” he said.
“We had a great army of volunteers who all came together to make it happen,” said Smith.
“I’m at church right now [on Sunday],” he said. “All the scouts are wearing their Thomas S. Monson award medallions and talking it up; there’s quite a buzz going.”

can become deadly.
Excessive heat claims more lives each year than tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and lightning combined. Senior care companies take great care to ensure that their residents are safe and hydrated in extreme temperatures.
