Being a Cub Scout
by Sam Warren
Pine Grove Student
I have had a really fun time in the many years that I have been in Cub Scouts. I have done some really fun things.I've learned how to safely use a knife,earning my whittling chip. I also got to go to a Harlem Globe Trotters game, it was so fun. I got my basketball signed by the team. Another exciting thing I've done was meeting the Lowell Spinners. We ran out on the field with the players, it was awesome! I also got to visit a huge warship, the USS Salem. I never thought I would ever get to sleep on such a big ship! The funnest thing I got to do during my 4 years was Cub Scout camp at Lone Tree Scout Reservation! We get to do archery, shoot targets with bb guns and lots of other fun things there.During my years as a Cub Scout I have learned in life you have to be trustworthy, respectful, loyal and most of all, to give back to your community.I have had a really great time as a Cub Scout and hope I have even more fun as a Boy Scout.
