Cub Scout Pack 144 will be recruiting new scouts on Thursday at Union Presbyterian Church. Prospective recruits are asked to use the church’s Third Street entrance for the 6:30 p.m. event. Masks will be required at the church, located at 329 N. Bent St.
There will be an explanation of the cub scouting program, including how it works and the many activities scouts can experience. The boys will be outside learning about bottle rockets at Thursday’s event.
“Cub Scouts will be doing a lot of new adventures this year,” said Judy Showalter, a leader with the local pack. “Come check us out!”
Scouting strives to teach the core values of citizenship, compassion, cooperation, courage, faith, health and fitness, honesty, perseverance, positive attitude, resourcefulness, respect and responsibility.
The main fundraising activity for the local Cub Scout pack involves selling various flavors of popcorn; each boy who sells popcorn receives a commission which can be used to pay the scout dues, get the uniform or get scouting equipment.
Membership cost for the year is $125. That includes a book, scarf, slide, shoulder patch, unit numerals, pinewood derby car, raingutter regatta boat, registration fee, and badges. Scholarships may be available.
Cub Scout Pack 144’s dens consist of:
• Lions (kindergartners): The pack is seeking a Lion Guide and an assistant for the den. A parent or guardian comes to each meeting with their Lion Cub.
• Tiger (first graders): Maureen Walsh is the den leader. A parent or guardian comes to each meeting with their Tiger Cub.
• Wolves (second graders): Linda Pease is the den leader and an assistant is needed for the den.
