Tuesday night The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America partnered together to present an original production about the history and values of scouting. "A Century of Honor" commemorates the 100-year relationship between the Church and the BSA. The production took place Tuesday night at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 7014 Frankford. The event involved the participation of Boy Scout Troops and Packs from all over Lubbock from all denominations and chartering organizations. The event also included scouting displays, activities, a rock climbing wall, and more. On May 21, 1913, the Church became the first nationally chartered organization to affiliate with the Boy Scouts of America.
