Mayor Rick Norby met with Pella Lutheran Church Boy Scout Troop 141 to sign a Proclamation making the week of Feb. 7-13, 2021 Boy Scout Week.


Whereas, the Boy Scouts of America has been at the forefront of instilling timeless values in youth since its founding in 1910; and

Whereas, the national youth movement has made serving others through its values-based program its mission; and

Whereas, the Boy Scouts of America is committed to helping youth succeed by providing the support, friendship, and mentoring necessary to live a happy and fulfilling life; and

Whereas, the Montana Council of the Boy Scouts of America and its many Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Venturing Crews are celebrating Scouting's 111th Anniversary; and

Whereas, there are 3 local community organizations that make Scouting available for youth members in our area who participate in the Scouting Program as a means of character building, citizenship training and personal fitness.

Now, Therefore, I, Rick Norby, Mayor of the City of Sidney, MT, do hereby designate the week of Feb. 7-13, 2021 as Boy Scout Week.

In Witness Whereof, I hereunto set my hand and cause the Seal of the City of Sidney to be affixed on this 1st day of February, 2021.

Rick Norby, Mayor"

The Scouting program is more than just an activity for our youth to learn about the outdoors. Scouting provides fun, fellowship and training to our youth as well as youth in our community. It emphasizes honesty, self-reliance, and respect. Through a year-round program, it affects character, citizenship and personal fitness. But the success of our Scouting depends on our volunteers who serve in a variety of leadership roles. As the Boy Scouts of America celebrates its anniversary, we honor all the members of the Boy Scouts of America and salute the volunteers who serve in positions of leadership.

If you know of any boy ages 12-18 that would like to be part of Pella Lutheran Church Troop 141, please contact Scoutmaster David Christensen, 406-489-7502.
