The Cub Scouts of Pack 730, led by Benjamin Sadler and sponsored by St. Paul’s Summerville, conducted their first fundraiser Jan. 11.
The event featured a pancake breakfast at Appleby’s on Old Trolley Road, and by all accounts the event was a real success. The boys raised nearly $600, and learned how to work as a team in a busy restaurant setting.
No plates were broken and everyone left with a smile. At their meeting the next day, the boys undertook the solemn task of deciding how to properly apply the pack’s newly-acquired resources.
In the spirit of the Cub Scout core value of Responsibility, which is defined as Fulfilling our duty to God, country, other people, and ourselves, the first order of business was the issue of a thanks offering to the group’s sponsor, St. Paul’s of Summerville.
The decision was made by the troop to give a donation of their profit back to the church. The next item was deciding a location for an overnight camp out, and Camp Ho Non Wah carried the vote. A date has not yet been set, but the Scouts are eager and ready to go.
