Scout Charlie Stoller works on a project in the background. Scouts learned to reuse 100 percent recyclable materials, and what most would consider trash, to create fun items. The assignment was designed to teach boys to reduce, reuse and recycle items to help save our land, air, water and wildlife, and to show how items can be recycled into another form verses filling up a landfill and polluting the environment, such as plastic bottles into clothing.

Pack 76 Cub Scouts had a special guest Friday night. Rick Jaques of Cassville, who served in the armed forces in Vietnam, spoke to the scouts about topics which parallel to lessons they are learning in the program. Jaques spoke about his service in the military, salutes and uniforms. He told the boys that as scouts, they are learning about how important it is to work together. During the meeting, scouts also learned how to properly fold and retire a U.S. Flag. Julia Kilmer reporter@cassville-democrat.com
