Calhoun Rotary invests in area youth

Among the programs supported by Calhoun Rotary Club are Boy Scout Troop 39 and Cub Scout Pack 39. The members of Calhoun Rotary are pleased to back programs designed to teach service, citizenship and good values to our young people.

On Tuesday night, Feb. 7, 2017, Cub Scout Pack 39 held their Blue and Gold Awards Banquet at the Scout Hut near Phil Reeves Stadium.

Pack 39 is made up of 22 Cub Scouts and is growing yearly. Among those attending the banquet were the Pack members, parents, siblings, friends and Scouting leaders. The Banquet was opened by Lea Fantom, Sequoia District Executive, who spoke about the meaning of Scouting and its value for the young people involved in the program. She emphasized the cooperation and support of families, community and friends.

Her remarks were followed by the presentation of awards, led by Cub Master Adam Hill. The awards segment was followed by a slideshow featuring the Pack’s activities of the previous year and will continue fundraisers such as the BBQ, Boogie & Blues event in April.

Cub Master Hill expressed his appreciation to Calhoun Rotary for keeping their Charter funded.
