In Memory of Lawrence E. Mangei

March 24, 1933 to April 11, 2016

untitled“Build me a Scout, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid; one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory…

Build me a Scout whose wishes will not take the place of deeds; a Scout who himself is the foundation stone of knowledge…

Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge. Here let him learn to stand up in the storm; here let him learn compassion for those who fail…

Build me a Scout whose heart will be clear, whose goals will be high. A Scout who will master himself before he seeks to master others, one who will march into the future, yet never forget the past…

And after all these things are his, add, I pray, enough of a sense of humor so that he may always be serious, yet never take himself too seriously. Give him humility, so that he may always remember the simplicity of true wisdom, and the meekness of true strength…

Then I, a Scouter who knew him, will dare to whisper, `I have not lived in vain.’”

 

NOTE TO ALL ALUMNI MEMBERS

The Jewish Committee on Scouting is trying to update the plaque in the Temple of the Ten Commandments that has the Ner Tamid Recipients listed on it.  We have a list from 2004 to present but we are missing those names from 1999 to 2003.  If you received this award during that time or know of someone who did, please call Judy at the Council Office and give her that information.  Thank you for your help!  (401-351-8700, Ext. 11).
