Free Informational Meeting about Joining Cub Scouts To Be Held Friday October 16

If you are a member of Pack One Saunderstown, you may have received noticed that the next pack meeting is Friday October, 16th at 7pm at North Kingstown’s United Methodist Church.  According to CubMaster Steve Prescott “we will have guests from the Rhode Island Canine Search and Rescue team visiting.  They will be talking about what to do if you find yourself lost in the woods.  We also hope to get a demonstration of what the search and rescue dogs can do!”
The North Kingstown Blog is a proud supporter of Pack One Saunderstown and applauds the many positive aspects of the cub scout program.  My son is an active member of this great local organization and has formed many great friendships because of the cub scout program.  Pack One Saunderstown provides a fun and safe learning atmosphere for boys to get educated on safety, good community involvement, and leadership skills.  There is respect for each other, for nature, and for their elders.  The Cub Scout program through Pack One Saunderstown is a positive experience that teaches boys and families life skills that will propel them to becoming outstanding leaders in their community.  My son’s leaders for the past few years have been Bruce and Trish Northrup. Trish messaged me that “the scouting program fosters growth in young boys that lasts long beyond an athletic season or a calendar year in school. The program emphasizes a young man giving his best and recognizing that his best efforts have long reaching impact in his community, even at such an early age.”
If you have a friend that is interested in becoming a Scout feel free to bring them to our pack meeting on Friday October 16th to learn about joining Cub Scouts.
