Cub Pack 1031: Scouts Learning How to Meet Safely by Regina Halper


Elizabeth and Michael B with their family and cousins learn Leave No Trace with hand signs.

Cub Pack 1031 had its first in-person meeting outside on July 11 at Little Paint Branch Park doing a cleanup along the trail and working on finishing up requirements for a couple of our scouts. We took the time to talk about our new procedures, how far away is six feet, and why we wear masks to keep everyone safe. It is good “training” for how we will proceed in the fall. We are planning to go on a hike and a bike ride later this summer.

We collected trash along the trail and would like to gently encourage folks to not drop their tissues, paper towels and food wrappers in the park because our young Cub Scouts had to pick them up (while wearing nitrile gloves). We did not find a lot of trash and are grateful to all the regulars on the trail who have been helping keep it clean.

We now can process new scouts and hope to meet and welcome new scouts to the pack. If you are interested in discovering the fun of Cub Scouts, please contact Regina Halper at Pack1031cubscouting@gmail.com for more information. We will be meeting as we can this fall both online and most likely in the outdoors.

A reminder: if you have Cub Scout uniforms that you do not need, please contact Regina Halper at the email above. The cost of Cub Scouting is going up, and sharing your uniforms will help cover the cost of participating for our families.
