The following is from our Scouting Chairman Bill Miller. Well done Bill and well done parents and leaders….
On Sunday, February 24th, one of our sponsored Cub Packs – 3776 – held their Blue and Gold dinner at the Lodge. The Pack has grown to its largest size since the beginning of our association with them about 8 years ago. The Lodge Room was full to overflowing (I counted over 120 people) as awards were given out to the cubs and a slide show broadcast a reminder of all the activities that were shared during the past year. Blue and Gold events typically include the “bridging” of Webelos II Cubs into Scouting and this year the Pack sent 11 boys into Troop 765 and two more into Troop 745. Although this depleted their ranks considerably, they still have 4 Tigers, 8 Wolves, 17 Bears and 3 Webelos I boys remaining and a bunch of eager moms and dads in their supporting cast. Along with the “graduation” of the large number of Webelos several key adult leaders accompanied their sons into the Scouting troops, including the Scoutmaster, Fred Hall, the Committee Chair, Treasurer, and Advancement Chair. However, replacements have volunteered to fill these slots and the Pack remains active, healthy and the kids seem to be having a good time.
