PORT HENRY - Cub Scout Pack 100 is newly established in Port Henry and is part of Twin Rivers Council, Wakpominee District and chartered by the Knights of Columbus in Port Henry.
"We are a small group , who are always looking for new committee members, leaders and scouts," said Karen Gangi, committee chairwoman.
The local committee consists of Gangi along with committee members Sam Gangi and Shane Carifee. Randy Welch is Cub Master, Greg Hayford Den Leader and Sam Gangi, Michael Rollins, Isaiah Bullock, Cooper Bullock, Josh Hayford, and Scott Rice assist.
"We have had a very busy winter doing lots of wood working," Gangi said. "Our boys have worked with and learned how to use many tools. Building bird houses, key rings, pine wood derby cars and car stands. We also went on a field trip to Lowe's for a demo on building pinewood derby cars. Recently our focus has been on learning about the importance of health and exercise.
"We as a group have found scouting in the town of Port Henry to be beneficial," she added. "We have seen support from the people in our community, small organizations and many businesses. Knights of Columbus and Boyea's Market supported our bottle drive held in November, Mac's Market provided a location for our bake sale held in January and the Moriah Fire Department kindly donated a location for our pinewood derby which was held on Feb. 6. We are very grateful and again send our thank.
"As a pack our outlook is to provide safe and productive meetings and outings," Gangi concluded. "To pull families together and as a group guide our boy to become responsible young adults."
