End of Year Cub Scout Activities 2018

The Cub Scout year is coming to a close for us. Here are some of the last things we did before going on summer hiatus!

My son's Cub Scout pack went to a local cemetery to put flags on veterans' graves for Memorial Day, which we were proud to do.

The pack also went to the Baltimore National Cemetery (which is Catonsville just outside Baltimore proper) where we joined other packs, troops, clubs, etc. The cemetery has over 40,000 interments. As they say, many hands make light work. We finished our section in about twenty minutes. We decided not to stay for the ceremony.

A job well done

The pack's Raingutter Regata was, ironically enough, rained out. The make-up day is in July, so hopefully we'll be in town for that.

The Bridging ceremony was the final official meeting of the year. My son crossed the bridge but didn't get a new neckerchief.

As a Webelos transitioning to Arrows of Light, he received his patrol patch. The boys chose the "Masked Marshmallows" as their patrol name, along with this fine patch.

Beware the Masked Marshmallows!

More stories will come in the Fall, if a Summer update doesn't come first...
