On Tuesday, March 23, 2004, The Waynedale News had the pleasure of entertaining Tiger Cubs Kyle Creed, Cody Meyer, Damian Ridenour, and Nathaniel Creed from Cub Scout Pack 3352, as well as a few adult leaders and parents. Pleasant Center School on Bluffton Road sponsors Cub Scout Pack 3352.

Associate Editor Ray McCune, took time off from his busy schedule to give the Cubs some pointers on being a journalist/writer, how a newspaper is put together, and of course he couldn’t resist demonstrating a few knots that could save a life as well as a ‘trick’ knot or two including the now famous ‘McCune’ Knot.

The Tiger Cubs and adults left with boxes of candy canes to enjoy and to share with the rest of their pack. The candy was a present to the Pack courtesy of Chester Gwodz.

The Waynedale News welcomes all Scouts to our office but let us know a few weeks ahead of time so that we can schedule your visit between production (publication) weeks. Thanks Scouts for being such good listeners; we enjoyed having you visit.

 

ITEMS STILL NEEDED FOR BOY SCOUT FOOD DRIVE

Anyone that missed donating to the ASSOCIATED CHURCH’S FOOD BANK on Saturday, March 27, 2004 may still donate canned goods, shelf items, non-perishables, and boxed items by dropping them off at the Anthony Wayne Area Council office.

According to an AWAC spokesperson, “5,500 pounds of food items were collected and there’s always a need for more.” Drop offs should be done between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday and from 9am to 1pm Saturdays at the AWAC office, 8315 West Jefferson Blvd.

Directions: From US 24, go to the light at Old Canal Place and where you turn to go to Lutheran Hospital – turn onto Old Canal Place, go past Verizon Headquarters, and the AWAC office is at the very end of the road very near I-69.

The Boy Scouts want to thank everyone for their generous donations and for helping your fellow man.

 

WORDS TO LIVE BY

“A Scout is clean . . . “A Scout keeps his body and mind fit. He chooses the company of those who live by high standards. Being clean in body is as practical and logical as one can get. Washing hands, bathing regularly, caring for one’s teeth, etc., will pay dividends in health, happiness, and personal relationships.

Keeping a clean mind is just as practical. People who tell off color jokes or use foul language only serve to reveal a lack of respect for others and an ignorance of common courtesy. A Scout knows there is no kindness or honor in such tasteless behavior. He avoids it in his own words and deeds. A Scout is clean . . . part of our code to live by.

If you are not a member of a Boy Scout Troop and would like to join, contact the AWAC Service Center at 260-432-9593 and ask about a Boy Scout Unit near you. You must be between the ages of 11 years and 18 years for Boy Scouts or between the ages of 14 years and 21 years old to join a Ventures Group. Volunteer Adult help is always welcome no matter what the age.
