Cub Scout sign-up Sept. 18 at Normandy

Scouting has been around for more than 100 years. This legendary program has attracted millions of boys because of the emphasis on outdoor adventure, making friends, learning new skills, and most of all, camping. Parents are attracted to it because it is a family program. Siblings are often welcome and it is a wonderful opportunity for moms and dads to spend quality time with their son. Scouting focuses on character education and community service but mostly it is a movement that teaches leadership.

On Thursday, Sept. 18, Bay Village will be having a Cub Scout sign-up night at 6:30 p.m. in the Normandy School cafeteria. Come hear about the three different Cub packs in Bay and the wonderful events they have planned. Cub Scouts are open to boys in grades one through five.

Whether it is a Halloween camp out, a community rake out, a pinewood derby race, or a raingutter regatta, Scouting offers a chance for boys to ditch the electronics and learn what it is like to hike in the woods, put up a tent, sing songs around a campfire, gain confidence and make friends that will last a lifetime.
