Pack committee chairman Guy McLellan and the Crestwood Cub Scouts celebrate the 100th year of Scouting in the USA.

Cub Scouts from Pack 3285 celebrated the 100th year of Scouting at their February meeting. February 8 marks the day that Boy Scouts of America (BSA) was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia by founder William D. Boyce. By 1912, Scouting had spread to every state in the union and continues to be a strong foundation for shaping today’s youth.

For many adults, their fondest memories of Cub Scouting center on the Pinewood Derby races. To commemorate the 100th anniversary, Pack 3285 is inviting all past members from Crestwood Elementary School to join them at their annual Pinewood Derby on March 6. Past members can create a new car to run or bring one of their original cars to race in the alumni heat. To learn more about the race, contact Guy McLellan at (616) 863-0350 or visit the Pack’s website at pack3285.ScoutLander.com.
