Squire visited by curious Scouts

Two Scout troops joined forces in their visit to the office of The Rockford Squire Newspaper on Monday, February 4. The Scouts were amazed Editor Beth Altena was able to tell them what day of the week they were born after looking in bound copies of the Squire the year they were born. Pack 3285, from Crestwood, and Pack 3280, from Appleview School and residing in Cedar Springs and Sparta, had a good time together. The kids enjoyed cookies compliments of Squire genius bookkeeper Mary Felix, who may be extra partial to one of the Scouts who is a family member.
