Wielding brooms, dustpans, buckets and grabbers, Pack 36 Cub Scouts recently spent two afternoons “greening up” downtown North Creek as a community service project.
North Creek The Cub Scouts of North Creek Pack 36 recently “greened up” along Main Street.
They were surprised by what they found, and even came up with a solution, which they then presented to Johnsburg Town Supervisor Ron Vanselow. The town’s Main Street, though, is a county road, so Vanselow advised the Scouts to address their concerns to the Warren County DPW.
The following is an open letter from the Cub Scouts to the community, an achievement toward a “Citizenship” award. The Pack does several community service projects each year.
Dear North Creek News Enterprise readers:
We cleaned up litter on Main Street of the town last month, and most of the trash was cigarette butts.
We think we should put cans (with sand) out along the street for people to put their cigarette butts in. To make it fun, we could put funny sayings on the cans. We (Cub Scout Pack 36) could make cans for next year.
We hope it works. Please think about the Cub Scouts, and remind smokers to put their butts where they belong.
