Cub scouts prepare for the holidays

~David Gardner

Following a successful recruitment effort in October, in which Pack 708 tripled in size, the boys have begun their yearly service project—the Thanksgiving Food Drive. The collection boxes for donations of non-perishable food may be found at the Post Offices, district schools, and government offices. The drive is done in conjunction with the Coronado Optimist Club and the Sandoval County Sheriff’s Posse.

Up-coming events include the town of Bernalillo nighttime Christmas Parade, visit to an assisted living home, and the annual Pinewood Derby in January. Other activities include a hike, swimming, and a field trip.

Den meetings are held weekly on Wednesday evenings, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the LDS church at 275 Avenida Bernalillo, in Bernalillo, and a monthly pack meeting is held on the fourth Wednesday at which the boys receive recognition for advancement, present skits, and play games. Visitors are always welcome.

For more information contact Snow Watson of the pack’s sponsoring organization, the Coronado Optimist Club, at 867-2047, the pack committee chairperson Amanda Griego at 507-1305.
