Cub Scout Pack 105 of Schwenksville has partnered with Schwenksville Elementary School through the Boy Scouts of America Adopt-A-School Program.
Scout members spent an afternoon helping to clean up area around the school. The boys helped trim bushes on the grounds, raked the fallen leaves and set down mulch for the winter season to come.
This activity helped instill a sense of community and responsibility for the boys, while providing them with some much necessary training for when they will be in charge of maintaining their own grounds.
It wasn’t all work obviously, as the boys were given the freedom to enjoy a little bit of play while keeping the objective in mind. In other words…several leaf piles had to be recollected upon their dispersal due to flying Cub Scout. Overall, a job well done and re-done by the boys!
The partnership with Schwenksville Elementary will also yield fruit…of the canned variety, as the boys will be collecting admission to the school’s movie night on Friday, October 25.
The price of admission will be the donation of a non-perishable food item per family, and the scouts will be collecting at the door starting at 5:45 pm. The movie will begin at 6:30 pm. All donations will be given to the Jerusalem Lutheran Food Pantry for distribution.
Scouts will continue their community service oriented activities in November, as they start their Scouting for Food campaign. These dedicated boys will place plastic bags on the doors of the various neighborhoods in Schwenksville, so that families may donate whatever non-perishable food items they can. Once again, these items will be delivered to the Jerusalem Lutheran Food Pantry, and the boys will help organize the bounty they haul in.
Community service is a core value for the Cub Scouts, and the boys of Pack 105 will be spending several evenings demonstrating just how much they care for their community over the next month.
