21 Calendar of Religious Dates There are certain dates and religious observances that must be adhered to by the individual. Arrangements must be made for participation in special services. The Islamic (Muslim) year begins with Muharram. All Islamic dates are subject to sighting of the moon; an event may be one day earlier or later than the date listed. According to the Eastern Orthodox Church calendar, the day begins after evening vespers at sunset and concludes with vespers on the following day. For this reason, the observance of all Eastern Orthodox holy days begins at sunset on the evening before the holy day. Jewish holidays begin at sundown of the first date listed and end at nightfall of the last date listed. A religious institution has the option of celebrating Scout Sunday/ Scout Sabbath at its discretion. For example, the United Methodist Church always celebrates Scout Sunday on the second Sunday in February. Note: * Usually begins at sundown the day before this date. ** Local customs may vary this date January 1 Mary, Mother of God, Catholic Christian Feast of St. Basil, Orthodox Christian Gantan-sai (New Years), Shinto 5 Twelfth Night, Christian 6 Epiphany, Christian 13 Maghi, Sikh 15 World Religion Day, Baha i 20 Tu B'shvat, Jewish February 4 Mawlid an Nabi, Islam 5 Scout Sunday 11 Scout Sabbath 15 Nirvana Day, Buddhist March 8 Purim, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) 9 Ash Wednesday, Christian 17 St. Patrick s Day, Christian 21 Norouz (The New Day), Zoroastrian 28 Khordad Sal (Birth of Prophet Zaranhushtra), Zoroastrian April 6 Good Friday, Christian 7-14 Pesach (Passover), Jewish (no activities on 7, 8, 13, 14) 8 Easter, Christian 14 Baisakhi, Sikh 15 Easter/Pesach, Orthodox Christian 17 Palm Sunday, Christian 30 St. James the Great Day, Orthodox Christian May 6 Buddha Day - Visakha Puja, Buddhist 10 Lag Ba'Omer, Jewish 27 Pentecost, Christian 29 Ascension of Baha u llah, Baha i June 2 Ascension of Christ, Christian 3 Trinity Sunday, Christian 8-9 Shavot, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) 10 Corpus Christi, Catholic Christian 15 Sacred Heart of Jesus, Catholic Christian July 9 Martyrdom of the B ab, Baha i 11 St. Benedict Day, Catholic Christian 20 Ramadan Begins, Islam 24 Pioneer Day, Mormon Christian 25 St. James the Great Day, Christian 29 Tisha B Aviv, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) August 10 Krishna Janmashtami, Hindu 15 Assumption of Blessed Virgin Mary, Catholic Christian Dormition of the Theotokos, Orthodox Christian September Rosh Hashanah, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) 26 Yom Kippur, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) October 1-7 Sukkot, Jewish (No Scouting activities on first, second, eighth, or ninth days) 4 St. Francis Day, Catholic Christian 9 Simhat Torah, Jewish (Precludes Scouting activities) Navratri, Hindu 20 Birth of the B ab, Baha i 28 Reformation Day, Protestant Christian 31 All Hallows Eve, Christian November 1 All Saints Day, Christian 2 All Souls Day, Catholic Christian 12 Birth of Baha u llah, Baha i 13 Diwali, Hindu, Jain, Sikh 22 Thanksgiving, Interfaith 26 Day of Covenant, Baha i December 2 First Sunday of Advent, Christian 8 Bodhi Day (Rohatsu), Buddhist Immaculate Conception, Catholic Christian 12 Feast Day - Our Lady of Guadalupe, Catholic Christian 9-16 Hanukkah, Jewish 25 Christmas, Christian 26 Zarathosht Diso (Death of Prophet Zarathushtra), Zoroastrian 26 - Jan. 1 Kwanzaa, Interfaith (continued on back)

23 Building the Council Annual Plan Gearing Into the Council Strategic Plan Using the council s current strategic plan, the first step is the annual review and updating of the strategic plan. By this review, and the resulting action of the executive board to approve current objectives that are attainable and challenging, the parts of the strategic plan affecting the annual plan being prepared can become the groundwork for subsequent steps in making the annual plan. The process of building the annual plan should begin well in advance of the quarter in which the plan will take effect. Starting early allows the logical steps to be taken in order, makes it possible to involve many people in unhurried deliberation, and permits basing the annual budget on the resulting plan. Steps in building an annual plan vary somewhat with different councils. Flexibility is fine as long as the basic principles are thoroughly respected: 1. The planning process is begun early. 2. All key leaders are involved. 3. The council makes one united plan all for one and one for all in which each district has its share. 4. The plan is complete in all its parts: objectives, program, calendar, work schedule. In general, the steps in building an annual plan are as follows. See scouting.org for unit annual program planning guides as a resource. Staff Planning Conference The professional staff develops a proposed plan. This is called a pencil draft to emphasize the fact that while the staff suggests, the volunteers make the final decision. This planning should be based on a thorough knowledge of unit needs, district needs, and the desires of volunteer groups. Having the pencil draft prepared in advance conserves the time of many volunteers and provides them with a good starting point. District Officers Conferences A series of informal conferences follows the staff planning conference. The meeting of district officers, or the district executive committee, is to review the pencil draft and make any changes that seem desirable. The important thing is that this process gives each of these key leaders an opportunity to share in the thinking and to be prepared for the council planning conference that is to follow. Council Planning Conference This meeting, involving the key leaders of the council and its districts, is best held on an afternoon and an evening. The first part is devoted to group meetings that consider the plan for each operating committee. When this has been completed, the groups join to hear the presentation of each committee s plans. The plan refined in this meeting goes to the council executive board for its adoption. The Districts Detail and Define Their Share At the next regular meeting of the districts, the council s plan and the districts shares in it are reviewed. Each committee details and defines its program and calendar. The council program is broad and general, as it affects the program of the various functions. It may include a camporee in every district, but it does not specify either the date or the place. The council has established new-unit objectives, but it does not specify where or when these are to be organized. Thus, there remains to each district and each committee a considerable task of putting in the specifics and details. Unit Planning Conference After the commissioner staff reviews the plan and its part in it, the council prepares an annual program plan ning kit for each unit. The kits are distributed as part of a councilwide program kickoff or at a unit plan ning conference in each district. Unit program planning kits may be printed or provided in electronic format, or both. The goal should be for every unit to have an annual program plan.

24 Boys Life Is Quality Program Help Make All Units 100% Boys Life Units Scouting s Journey to Excellence (JTE) is the BSA s performance recognition program designed to encourage and reward success and to measure the performance of our units. JTE units that also qualify as a 100% Boys Life Unit may wear any of the three special Boys Life edition JTE emblems gold, silver, or bronze. Boys Life Is Good Scouting Leaders appreciate that Scouts who read Boys Life stay in Scouting longer and advance in rank faster and more often than Scout non-subscribers. They know that each issue of Boys Life covers monthly Cub Scout activities and a Boy Scout program feature. Boys Life Is Good Reading Parents like Boys Life because it encourages their sons to read. The articles and stories in Boys Life are wholesome and entertaining, and they help boys to grow up to be men of good character. Teachers know that in tomorrow s world good reading will be a survival skill. If our youth are to compete on a level playing field, they must be able to effectively understand the printed word. Boys Life encourages boys to practice reading. Two Editions One Great Magazine Boys Life publishes two editions each month to meet the reading level needs of young subscribers. The Cub Scout edition goes to all youth and adult subscribers in the Cub Scout program. It has more pictures, puzzles, comics, and word games than the Boy Scout edition, in which the reader will find more articles and stories geared to the older, Boy Scout-age youth (A Boys Life Program Package item) 2012 Printing
