Boy Scout Troop 228 held their annual Cub Scout open house on November 5. The event is designed to give the Webelos-level Cub Scouts the opportunity to experience the next level of Scouting by visiting a Boy Scout troop.

“Scouting is fun with a purpose,” according to Scoutmaster Jim Grissom. “The goal of Scouting is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law. As a troop, the boys strive to grow in moral strength and character, to practice participating citizenship and develop physical, mental and emotional fitness.”

Following the opening flag ceremony, the younger Scouts attended different work stations set up by the troop members. Each station allowed the older boys to demonstrate their skills in areas such as pocket knife safety, knot tying and outdoor cooking.

Troop 228, chartered to Bostwick Lake Congregational Church, is open to any boy in grades 6-12 or have completed Cub Scout Webelos. To learn more about becoming a member, contact Scoutmaster Jim Grissom at (616) 361-6964.
