Official Cub Scout Business

Cub Scouts Jack, Ryan and Pepe from Den 3, Pack 369 performed the official flag ceremony at Parker Colorado's town council meeting last night. After visiting with the Mayor for last minute microphone instructions, Jack gave the color guard commands for the posting of the flags and led the Pledge of Allegiance for the beginning of the meeting. The boys were in awe of our town hall, with its cool video and sound system and how the meeting was attended by so many official-looking people, including officers from the Police Department!

Scouting has given Jack so many opportunities to learn about our community. Last weekend, during trail clean-up, we found a weathered, old lost wallet. Since he had learned about the police station and some of its functions last year, we returned to the station with the wallet so they could find its owner. We are lucky to live in such a great place and we feel even more fortunate when we can give the kids experiences that show them how they make our community even better!
