Bedford Cub Scouts Pack 194 celebrates it 50th year of service
Submitted by Peter Ricci
On Monday, August 25, from 4 to 7 PM, the Pack will be holding a drop-in field day at the town’s E field (softball field across from Library on Mudge Way).
If your boy is interested in the Cub Scouting program, or you would like to encourage him to learn more, the Pack encourages you to come by and meet leaders and scouts. There will be open field play, such as kickball, wiffle ball, Frisbee, relay races, and the like. Look for signs and the Pack 194 banner and flags marking the location.
Bedford Pack 194, now in its 50th year of continual service, is recruiting scouts entering grades 1 to 4 for new members. While some scouts enter in first grade and continue through the first half of fifth grade, others enter at any time during those grades.
Recently, Cubmaster Peter Ricci retired and passed the position over to New Cubmaster James Reynolds. “Jim” worked as a Den Leader, alongside Peter for four years.
Cub Scouts is a civic organization. In addition to promoting personal growth, there is a focus on being better community members. The Pack (all the boys grades 1-5) meets once a month, while the individual Dens (each separate grade level) meet once or twice as well during the month to work on activities, during the school year. In addition, there is a whole Pack outing about once a month. Participation level is up to you and your boy – you can learn more about this at the recruitment event. As a civic organization, the Pack participates in events such as the Bedford Memorial Day and Veterans’ Day activities, and Beautify Bedford cleanup day. Other activities include the famous Pinewood Derby® (model car race), Rocket launch, and Raingutter Regatta® model boat race.
