“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”
— Herm Albright (quoted in Reader’s Digest, June 1995)



January – Positive Attitude
Being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations.
As boys participate in various activities, they will come to understand that all things change and they can make a difference in how that change affects their lives. A positive outlook will provide hope and excitement for their future.
