Cub Scouts...what a great organization!
We signed Wally up for Cub Scouts this year because he is in the 1st grade and this was his first year of elligibility. He is officially called a Tiger Scout after earning his Bobcat Badge last night. We have REALLY enjoyed this commitment and look forward to years of service with the Cub Scouts.
Wally has loved wearing his little uniform to the weekly den meetings, selling popcorn to our friends and neighbors, and learning about camping, fellowship, and community service. We are looking forward to singing Christmas Carols to the disabled Veterans next month and participating in the Holiday Food Drive for the local Food Pantry.
What are you doing to help your children invest their time and energy into community service? If you're looking for a way to do this, I highly recommend the Cub Scouts! It's a great way to be a servant to the community, but also a wonderful bonding experience between a boy and his parents.
