Cub Scouts offers plenty; signups slated
Posted: Monday, August 9, 2010 9:07 pm
Boys want to have fun camping, hiking, fishing, going on field trips, building pinewood derby cars, playing games and shooting bb guns and bows and arrows.
Parents want their sons to learn values like being trustworthy, helpful, loyal and kind; to learn to be independent and self-sufficient; to spend time with their family; and to have positive role models.
With Cub Scouts, they both win.
Scouting combines fun with educational activities and lifelong values. For nearly 100 years, Scouting has been building tomorrow’s leaders.
Boy Scouts of America currently serves more than two million boys in the first through fifth grades (or ages 7-10) through its Cub Scout program. Locally, the West Tennessee Area Council’s Cub Scouting program serves over 2,700 boys.
Cub Scout Sign Up Nights are scheduled at four local elementary schools later this month.
The event will be held Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m at Union City Elementary School’s gymnasium and Aug. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at Black Oak, Hillcrest and Ridgemont elementary school cafeterias.
The registration fee for Union City is $42 for 17 months and includes Boys Life magazine for 17 months, while the registration fee for Black Oak, Hillcrest and Ridgemont is $24 for 17 months and Boys Life magazine is an additional $18 for 17 months.
