On Tuesday, March 25, Pack 217 fertilized and watered trees at Taylor Elementary. We had 13 boys and 13 parents show up to help. A bucket brigade was established to water trees and plants where the hose wouldn’t reach. Work was done with shovels and brooms to clean off the cement border around the playground.
Pack 585 from Sun Valley, NV:
Our little cubbies helped out Virginia Palmer Elementary during and after Hero Night. Hero night consisted of students sharing their personal stories about their hero’s. The cub scouts helped set up/clean up and helped out during the event. We had a total of 12 little cubbies help that night and to show the school their appreciation.
Thank you very much to Virginia Palmer Elementary for the continued support of our Pack.
On October 24, 7 scouts and 3 parents helped the counselor by counting out the materials to be distributed to the students fro Red Ribbon Week. Each bag was counted out for the specific number of students for that teacher.
On August 20, 2013, Pack 217 helped Taylor Elementary get ready for the start of school by cleaning desks, pulling weeds from the flower gardens and helping the music teacher prepare her room. We had 6 scouts and 5 parents participate.
Pack 59 spent the evening cleaning up the debris from the wind at Bubbling Wells. The bushes around the Administration Building were jammed with trash and leaves. The boys worked really hard.
On March 15 2014 pack 368 moved a huge pile of dirt to science garden at Alamance Elementary School. We moved dirt for 2 hr by wheel barrels and spread dirt into the 10 huge flower beds built by a eagle scout from Troop 368 so teacher could plant plants for science project. It was hard work and the staff was amazed that we completed the task in 2 hrs. I was very please with the cubs of pack 368 for all there hard work they did.
On January 17, 5 Scouts from Pack 131 in Prairieville, LA gave up the morning of a school outage to help beautify the campus of their school. They cleaned out long-neglected flower beds, trimmed overgrown bushes along the bus lane and raked up months of accumulated leaves. We are so proud of their hard work and look forward to our next project on March 21st!
Wayne City Cub Scouts collect 1200+ Books to Donate to Local Library
During the month of February, Cub Scout Pack 185 (Wayne City, IL) held a book drive in preparation for this year’s Wayne City Summer Reading Program. The Wayne City Summer Reading Program was a huge Adopt-a-School service project organized by Wayne City’s Cub Scout Pack 185, and as an additional Adopt-a-School service project (to help this year’s Wayne City Summer Reading Program thrive), the Scouts held a book drive to collect children’s books.
The Scouts set out book drive bins at ten different locations in the Wayne City area, and the response from the community was overwhelming. The Scouts were able to collect 1,200+ books during this event! All donated books have been added to the catalog of the Wayne City Public Library. These donations will give the children of our community a larger reading selection to allow for this year’s Wayne City Summer Reading Program and Story Time Events to be bigger and better than ever!

Our adopted school, Ben Gamla Charter held a 5K run/walk along the beach. Our scouts handed out water bottles at the finish line, cheered on runners, and did a leave no trace patrol to clean the area. The event raised approximately $15,000 to support the school and we were critical to them cleaning up and finishing on time.
Cub Scout Pack 105 from Schwenksville, Pa has been very busy with their adopted school, Schwenksville Elementary. In February they ran the bake sale table at the school’s Book Fair family night. In March they collected food donations from a family movie night held at the school. They also delivered those donations to a local food pantry. Also in March, they made posters to advertise a book drive being held at the school. These books are being donated to the local library in Schwenksville. 36 scouts helped with these events.
