Cub Scouts hike out old year, race into new year
“We’ll celebrate the founding of the Scouts during February with our Blue and Gold Banquet and our Scouting for Food Program,” explains Cub Master David Gardner.
Throughout the month, Pack 708 will be collecting food and monetary donations that they will then pass on to the Roadrunner Food Bank. People with additional donations for this month-long program may contact Mr. Gardner.
The Pack’s annual Blue and Gold Banquet will be held on February 22, at 6:30 p.m., at Carroll Elementary School. Advancement awards will be given at the dinner.
‘Scouting at the Legislature’ is scheduled for February 8 when the cub scouts will travel on the RoadRunner train to Santa Fe to learn more about how state government operates. On February 11 the cub scouts will hike north from Bernalillo along the Rio Grande where they will identify fauna and flora of the river and bosque.
The Pack’s Rebecca Myers received the Volcano Award for Outstanding Performance at the Boy Scouts’ Rio Grande District’s Recognition Banquet January 14. Ms. Myers is Pack 708’s Tiger Cub Den Leader.
Pack 708’s meetings are held at the LDS Church Center in Bernalillo, west of I-25’s Exit 240. The weekly meetings are held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. New scout members are always welcome in the Pack. Planning meetings with parents are held on each month’s fourth Tuesday.
