"Golden Days: A Celebration of Life"
It was a night they'll never forget. 50 Venture Scouts form the Great Salt Lake Council were given the opportunity to represent their families, Crews and neighobrs in celebrating President Monson's Birthday on August 17, 2012 at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City. In they marched, hundreds of them carrying the Stars and Stripes and flags from around the world as they sang "The Trailbuilders' Hymn" with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It was all in tribute to President Monson’s longtime association with Scouting. He has served more than four decades on the National Executive Board of Boy Scouts of America; received Scouting’s Silver Beaver and Silver Buffalo awards; International Scouting’s highest award, the Bronze Wolf; and Scouts Canada’s Silver Fox Award.
Salt Lake City Venture Scout Will Steiner said, "Celebrating his birthday is great. He's had a long life and he's done a lot of great things, especially with Boy Scouting."
