NORTHBOROUGH – Nine Cub Scouts from Pack 55 have earned their Arrow of Light, which is the highest award in Cub Scouts.
In a ceremony in late March, the Cub Scouts crossed over to become Scouts BSA and were welcomed by Troop 1.
Pack 55 is thriving, and in fact, the pack is the largest it’s been in years, according to leaders. While the pack missed out on some activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cub Scouts were able to see the first Lion group in town as well as the first girls from Northborough join the BSA.
Members of Pack 55 have been able to give back to the community by participating in a number of activities, including the town clean up, placing flags on graves on Memorial Day, Scouting for Food and participating in community events like Applefest.
Additionally, town residents and leaders from the fire and police departments; American Legion; town officials Mitch Cohen and Kerri Martinek; staff from the Apple store; and a personal fitness trainer, public health, National Guard officers and a graduate beginning their military training visited the Cub Scouts.
