Roxbury Cubs celebrated Scouting's 100th year
Cub Scout Pack #41 celebrated the 100th year of the Cub Scouts on March 13 at the Blue and Gold Dinner. Awards were presented to each of the boys at the potluck dinner, which also featured a dessert contest.
First place in the dessert contest went to Nick Dorrance and his father, Mike, for their cherry cobbler, while second place was awarded to Nathan Plant and his dad, Chris, for their 100th anniversary cake. Matthew Accordino and his father, Kevin, took third place for their apple and blueberry turnovers.
Dorrance and Accordino each received the Arrow of Light Award, which is the highest award given in Cub Scouts and is the only badge to be worn on the uniform. Upon receiving the awards, both scouts bridged over to Boy Scouts and joined the pack led by Shila Biruk.
On hand to witness the presentation of the award were five members of Pack #41 Roxbury and their parents, as well as members of the Dorrance and Accordino families.
The scouts will be organizing a fund-raiser to earn money for other events later this summer.
