Pack 811 once again fulfilled its commitment to “help other people” this past weekend as we completed this year’s food drive to help the A.C.T. office provide help to others in our community. As I indicated at our pack meeting, I submitted this service project to the international Scouting organization so our scouts can wear the new “Messengers of Peace” emblem on their uniforms.
As of this evening, our entry is a “featured post” on the home page of the international site Scout.org. Our little Cub Scout pack is now getting international exposure! If you have a few minutes, I encourage you to read some of the entries on the website. Scouters from 6 different countries have already commented on our little entry (which can be seen directly here). You will soon realize just how big the scouting movement is across the world, and how Scouting is helping to make our world a little smaller.
Thank you to all Scouts and parents who helped out, especially to John Spielman for his great leadership on this project.
