With a new year comes many changes, but one change in particular will stand out in the memories of young boys in Campbell County- their Cub Scout graduation.

On Friday, Feb. 6 at Jacksboro Methodist Church, the Cub Scouts Blue and Gold Banquet will recognize about 50 boys graduating to new levels of scouting.

The guest speaker for the ceremony will be retired General Carl Stiner.

The cubs have worked tirelessly over the past year to earn the patches lining their green uniforms. The Cub Scout dens of the tigers, wolfs, bears and webelows have completed numerous service projects for their community, church and home. These accomplishments have graduated the boys, from six to 12-years-old, to the next levels of scouting.

“We will recognize the cub’s dedication and accomplishments throughout the year,” said Wolf Den Leader Lisa Fields.

Tickets for the event were sold to benefit Cub Scout pack 623. Dinner will be catered by Fazoli’s Restaurant and begin at 6:30 p.m. Stiner will then give a brief speech about the successes of the scouts.

The youth will then be presented with the final patch for their cub den and be approved to move forward to the next level.
