Cub Scout Pack 44 busy during November
The local Pack 44 dens were very busy during November selling and distributing popcorn, marching in the Anna Veteran’s Day parade, and participating in the nationally acclaimed food drive, Scouting For Food.
The pack sold over $24,500 worth of popcorn with proceeds to help support the local pack and the national council.
The boys were motivated to help their pack and did an awesome job of getting out and selling popcorn to their friends and family.
Participating Cub Scouts won prizes according to how much each sold.
The pack also added Swiss Army knives as a prize to the highest sellers as an extra incentive for the boys.
The knives will be handed out at the December pack meeting.
The boys were also in the Veterans Day parade. The boys were dressed in full uniform and marched alongside the den leaders and helpers.
On Nov. 14, the Pack Cubs went door to door handing out bags for Scouting for Food drive.
The following Saturday the dens collected the bags that contained over 3,000 food items to donate to the local food bank in Bethany Village in Anna.
Nationally, the Scouting organization collected many millions of food items to go to local food pantries.
The pack is grateful for all the help and donations from the community this fall to make these fundraisers and food drives a success.
