Cub Scouts host open house
Cub Scout Pack 1 of Jamestown is holding an Open House and Pizza Party at its first meeting of the school year on Monday, Sept. 25, at the Fort Getty pavilion, starting at 5:30 p.m.
This meeting is designed for families to come and learn more about the pack's program and to have an opportunity to register their son as a member in the pack. The families will also have the opportunity meet the Cub Scouts that already belong to the pack and the all-volunteer staff of adult leaders. Parents are also encouraged to consider volunteering to fill vacant den leader or committee positions.
Cub Scouting is available to boys in grades 1 to 5. Boys of different age groups become members of different dens -Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos I and II. The focus is on having fun. Activities include weekend and summer camping, field trips and a variety of other events. Benefits of Scouting include character development, team building, and personal fitness.
With a membership of about 50 boys, Pack 1 had a very successful program last year. The activities included an overnight trip to the Battleship Cove, the annual Blue and Gold Dinner, Science Night with radio-controlled cars, Scout is Reverent Sunday, the Pinewood Derby, bike rodeo, and a food drive for the local food bank. The Jamestown Cub Scout Pack 1 is proud to be sponsored by the Jamestown Lions Club.
