A RESOLUTION recognizing February 8, 2006 as Scouting in New Hampshire Day.

Whereas, scouting trains young people in citizenship, service, and leadership; and
Whereas, scouting serves America’s communities and families with its quality, value-based program; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring
