Cub Scouts offer local programs for youth

This letter is in memory of Larry Scott.

My parents signed me up for Cub Scouts in grade school. Although I did not know anyone in the troop, I quickly made friends.

A lot of families are involved in sports throughout the year, and I am thankful that mine kept me involved in scouts. There have been many changes since I first joined, but the core values are still there.

We still do community service: we camp and hike; we learn to tie knots; and we have friendship and fellowship.

As I am on the road to Eagle, the highest rank in scouting, I encourage fathers, take your sons to scouts. We have two troops in Randolph County, 66 and 88.

My troop, 66, meets at 7 p.m. every Thursday at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church beside 4-H Camp Pioneer in Beverly.
