The Cub Scout Pack 59 previously held their meetings at the Salem Lutheran Church at 91 West Main St. in Springville, but that is about to change.
“Cub Scout Pack 59 has grown rapidly over the past few years” said Greg Keyser, Assistant Cub Scout Master
The Pack meets every Tuesday night at their new location, the First United Methodist Church at 474 East Main St. in Springville, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Keyser wants to thank the Salem Lutheran Church for their support over the years
“The Pack was recognized for its outstanding recruitment efforts as we are now holding our weekly meetings at the First United Methodist Church,” he said
Keyser expressed that the First United Methodist Church “allows our scout family the room to spread out and continue to grow.” Cub Scout Pack 59 is “ a family unit and open to boys and girls.”
The Cub Scouts of America states, “In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves and grow into their very best future selves.”
Members of the Pack can range from kindergarten to fifth grade. The Pack offers many activities for “survival,” and just for fun.
According to the Cub Scouts of America, “It’s fun, hands-on learning and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares them for today — and for life.”
“Some of our activities include rain gutter regatta, pinewood derby, family overnight opportunities, hikes, summer camp and a lot more,” Keyser said.
“Cub Scout activities are centered around earning badges,” the Cub Scouts of America states.
Collecting badges is rewarding for kids and promotes having goals and developing ways to reach those goals by learning new things.
