Tiger Cubs guess mom’s age in 1871

The Thursday, April 12 visit to the Squire newspaper office of Tiger Cubs from pack 3264 was as entertaining as such visits usually are when students come up with interesting questions and answers about the newspaper industry.

The Valley View Elementary School first-grade students were shown the framed copy of the first edition of the Rockford Weekly Register dated February 8, 1871. They were asked the question that usually starts out such tours, “Do you remember where you were in February of 1871?” One alert Tiger Scout responded, “We weren’t even born yet and our moms were probably 20.”
