Boys and Girl Scouts from Den Nos. 2, 5 and 15 of Lilburn Pack 564 led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance during Monday's City Council meeting.
After leading the recital in English, Den 5 Cub member Zach Dillard (the redheaded tike) led the audience in a Spanish version of the pledge. The audience chimed in thanks to a Spanish version of the pledge on the Council Chamber monitor.
the Council meeting, Mayor Tim Dunn hosted a Q&A session with the Scouts. The Mayor and Council appreciate young people who show interest in Democracy at work. Scouts occasionally attend meetings to recite the pledge and get a look-see at city leaders.
Because of their interest, the Scouts of Pack 564 are collectively recognized as the City's January Citizen(s) of the Month.
Involvement today may lead to service in the future, it is hoped.
