THE LONGHORN TIMES
Snowball Express Is in Dire Need of Your Help!
Service is one of the cornerstones of Scouting. It is our duty and privilege to serve others. Seldom, though, do we sacrifice our lives doing so.
Those who serve our country in combat many times end up sacrificing their lives. That's what the Snowball Express is about. The event includes an all-expense paid trip to DFW for deceased veteran's children to meet/socialize with other children that have lost a parent during combat since 9/11. American Airlines charters them in from all four corners of U.S., and some from abroad. There is an opening ceremony/party (Thursday, December 11th– 6pmish) at the FTW convention center that is a surprise for attendees. The event is in dire need of ushers to assist families to their seats, etc.
There is also a big "Walk of Gratitude" from the convention center to Sundance Square (Sat, Dec 13th– 9 am) that any Scouts and families could attend and give praise/love to the families—just bring smiling faces, posters, flags, and loud appreciative voices.
