Pack 323 Scouting Editor, Jeff Gerber
Tiger Cub Scouts from Pack 323, sponsored by First Presbyterian Church, visited the Leeís Summit Tribune today. They enjoyed writing, eating popcorn and listening to the police scanner.
The Scouts included Landon, Matthew, Sergio, Liam, Brett, Aidan, Gregory Max and Vincent. The boysí leaders were Eric, Erick and Fiona with Cubmaster David.
The Scouts interviewed each other and their leaders.
Matthew learned that Greg wants to be an Eagle Scout because itís the highest rank for a Boy Scout.
Landon likes Scouting because itís fun and the program helps the community.
Vincent enjoys visiting different places in the community to learn. The Tiger Cubs have previously had trips to the police station and the Stained Glass Station.
Max likes earning badges and looks forward to the Pinewood Derby, when the Scouts will build their own wooden cars and race them.
Aidan asked his father, Eric, why heís a Scout leader. Eric replied that he loves his son and wants to give back to the community.
Brett likes camping and learning different things than in school.
The boys also learned that Brettís dad, Tim, used to be a Cub Scout in Troop 251, which was lead at that time by Tribune publisher/owner Linda Ahern.
Sergio enjoys the activities in Scouting, such as playing charades.
Liam became a Cub Scout because his brothers used to be Scouts.
