Service and fun await the Cub Scouts

“We have four big events in September,” says Pack Master David Gardner. The scouts’ visit to the flight simulators was so popular that they will return to practice more take-offs, loop de loops, and landings.

The scouts will take advantage of the state’s Free Fishing Day in September, grab their rods, and go fishing.

To pay for fieldtrips like these, the boys of Pack 708 will participate in the annual Scout Popcorn Sale. Profits from the fundraiser will help pay for fieldtrips and the scouts’ membership and summer camp fees.

To round out September, the cub scouts will participate in the fall ‘Toss No Más’ campaign. The boys and their families will clean up the trash and litter from a neighborhood assigned to them.

While not actually a project until October, the cub scouts also will be preparing for their Thanksgiving Sharing project with the Coronado Optimist Club.

New members are welcome at Pack meetings on Wednesdays, from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m., at the Railrunner Station in Bernalillo. Pack meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month. The Pack’s meeting schedule will remain the same through the school year.
