Cub Pack 1031 Is Getting Ready for Scouting for Food!
Cub Pack 1031 helped collect our Scouting for Food donations and sorted them at St. Joseph’s Food Pantry with Troop 1033. Afterwards the Cubs gathered and cooked hot dogs and s’mores over a campfire! Many thanks to everyone in Beltsville who donated to our food drive!! The pack collected 725 lbs. of food and the troop collected 1270 lbs. for St Joseph’s and Emmanuel United Methodist Church food pantries!! Thank you, Beltsville!
Our younger dens went on a one-mile hike and looked for signs of nature and leaves. We found an Osage Orange in the park – we didn’t even know there was an Osage tree in the park! They also made small birdhouses. The Bear den planted garlic cloves which will grow over the winter into garlic knobs. The Webelos dens worked on Engineer and a new Modular Design pin. We have several future engineers and adult engineering mentors in our pack!
Next month we will have our 2023 Pinewood Derby and get toys for Toys for Tots.
It is not too late to join, just contact Regina Halper at Pack1031cubscouting@gmail.com for information. We are a family scouting unit. We learn outdoor skills, citizenship, STEM, nature and doing service. We look forward to having another fantastic year! We are back in Beltsville Academy for our den meetings. And happy to be meeting in our usual place and learning about engineering, nature, doing service and hiking in the outdoors.
