Cub Scouts receive recognition at annual Blue & Gold banquet
Cub Scout Pack 76 hosted its annual Blue and Gold Banquet on Feb. 4 at the American Legion Home in Cassville.
The highlight of the event was the Arrow of Light ceremony, which marked the promotion of six young men from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. Honored Scouts included: Zach Thomas, Will Edmondson, Jacob Holz, Delane Hopkins, Dustin Simms and Cory Lane. All six of these young men are members of Webelos II, whose leaders are Cindy Thomas, Renee Hopkins and Bill Simms.
The Arrow of Light is the highest honor a Cub Scout may earn and is the only badge that carries over to Boys Scouts.
Thomas, Edmondson, Holz, Hopkins and Simms received Super Achiever awards for obtaining all 20 badges possible for a Webelo.
