Pack 28 Blue & Gold Mexican Fiesta Dinner

February 20, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Of any one hundred boys who become Scouts, usually 30 will drop out in their first year. Perhaps this could be regarded as a failure, but in later life all of these will remember that they had been in Scouts and will speak well of the program

Cub Scout Pack 28 is turning 70! To celebrate this monumental occasion, the Pack will host a Blue & Gold Mexican Fiesta Dinner on Thursday, February 20, at 6:30p. The fundraiser dinner will be at the First Christian Church on the corner of 5th and Florence in Claremore. The cost is just $5!

The dinner will celebrate the Pack’s birthday, as well as the general advancement of the boys. One member will be receiving the Arrow of Light, which is the highest award that is given in the Cub Scouts. Another highlight of the evening will be featured guest and speaker Marshall Daugherty, who is an Eagle Scout and retired Navy Seal and Commander. Daugherty was awarded a heroism award while a Boy Scout for saving another person’s life. He also holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Harvard University.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit Pack 28, paying for items like uniforms, field trips, camping gear and advancement awards. The cost of outfitting a Cub Scout for one year is approximately $140, and the money will also help with uniform scholarships.

Pack 28 participates in numerous community activities, including the Claremore Christmas Parade. Another fun annual event is an overnight trip to the USS Batfish in Muskogee, where the boys can sleep in the submarine!

Cub Scouts is open to boys in 1st – 4th grade. After completing the ranks in Cub Scouts, they move on to Boy Scout Troop 828. For more information on the event, or on joining the Cub Scouts, please email Cubmaster David Steward at pack28.claremore@gmail.com, or call 918.798.6265. Additionally, if you are a former member of Cub Scout Pack 28 or Boy Scout Troop 828, please contact David Steward, as you would be an honored guest at the event.

Each of the one hundred will learn something from Scouting. Almost all will develop hobbies that will add interest throughout the rest of their lives. Approximately one-half will serve in the military, and in varying degrees, profit from their Scout training. At least one will use it to save another person’s life and many will credit it with saving their own.

Only one in four boys in America will become a Scout, but it is interesting to know that of the leaders in this nation in business, religion and politics, three out of four were Scouts.
