Scout greeting you.

French: Bonjour (bohn-ZHOOR)
German: Guten Tag (GOOT-en Tahg)
Mandarin: Ni hao (nee-HOW)
Russian: Zdravstvuite (ZzDrast-vet- yah)
Mohawk: Sekoh (SEH-goh)
Swahili: Jambo (JAM-bo)
Arabic: Al salaam a’alaykum (AHL sah-LAHMah
Hindi: Nahmaste (nah-mah-STAY)
Hebrew: Shalom (Sha-LOHM)

No matter where you go or how you say it, you can count on being greeted by a Scout who says
‘Hello’. Please join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
