The Y Guides Slogan, Aims, Pledge and Prayer call us to put into practice our program focus of strengthening the father-child relationship through one-on-one activities. It’s through these shared experiences that fathers and their children grow closer and form memories that last a lifetime.
Pals Forever, Friends Always
To be clean in body and pure in heart
To be "Pals Forever/ Friends Always" with my father/ son/ daughter
To love the sacred circle of my family
To listen while others speak
To love my neighbor as myself
To respect the beliefs and traditions of all people
To seek and preserve the beauty of Our Creator's work in forest, field and stream
"We, father and son/daughter, through friendly services to each other, to our family, to this crew, to our community and country, seek a world pleasing to the eye of Our Creator."
