Scouts take pride in hometown

17 years ago

    MAPLETON, Maine – Cub Scout Pack 170 has been busy in recent weeks, putting on a supper and helping clean up the community.
“The Scouts recently put on the supper for the Lion’s Auction and wish to thank everyone who took part in it,” said Cub Master Adam Rider.

Assisting with serving the supper were members of Troop 170 of Mapleton.
In an effort to help beautify their community, the boys also spent a day cleaning up around town.
“The boys held a garbage-athon – a community cleanup day with boys from Cub Scout Pack 170 spending the day April 28 picking up trash and sprucing up their hometown,” said Rider. “Trash was picked up along roads in the area.”
The events provided the boys with an opportunity to give back to their community.
The supper, held on May 5, served 101 adults. Proceeds from the events go to Pack 170.
“Funds raised between the garbage-athon and the dinner will be used toward summer camp,” Rider said.
About 20 Scouts participated in both events.
“On cleanup day, we got pledges and donations for the garbage-athon. We’d like to thank all the residents and businesses who gave toward that event,” said Rider.
Rider encourages anyone interested in learning more to call for information. Anyone interested in the Cub Scouts can contact Rider at 764-6897 or Assistant Cub Master Dave Adams at 764-8189. Weekly meetings are held each Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
