Lewinsville Park, McLean Virginia
McLean Day Festival 2023, McLean’s biggest annual event, drew approximately 10,000+ patrons this year. Event attendees enjoyed music, games, a petting zoo, amusements, exhibitors, information booths, gourmet food trucks, carnival rides, and much more!
NatCapLyme and McLean Scout Troop 128 shared an informational booth and spent the day educating children and their families as well as the public-at-large about tick awareness and prevention. The scouts planned games and activities as a part of their educational outreach.
Service to others is an important part of the Scout Oath: “….to help other people at all times.” Each year tens of thousands of scouts strive to achieve the coveted Eagle Scout rank by applying character, citizenship, and scouting values in their daily lives. A big salute goes out to the young men who manned the booth and made it a priority to educate their fellow classmates, families, and friends at McLean Day 2023!
