Cub Scout Pack 998 Service Project

Pack 998 from Kenwood Station Elementary gave the donated food collected from Scouting For Food to the South Oldham Inter-church Council. In December, the Scouts spent their normal Pack meeting time packing food boxes. A total of 22 scouts and their families made food boxes to help 300 needy families in Oldham County. Each family will received 4 boxes of food which included dry and canned goods, fresh milk, bread, a ham, and bags of apples and potatoes.

A few of the Scout families then delivered the food boxes to the needy families. It was a great way for the Scouts to learn about the process of how the donated food from Scouting For Food ends up in someone else's pantry.




Goshen Pack 984 Committed to Conservation Funded by Grants

The Pack has recently completed two conservation projects for Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve in Goshen. The first project was to build and install 20 bird boxes. The Pack purchased and built Wood Duck Nest boxes, Kestrel boxes, Screech Owl boxes, and Bluebird boxes.

The second conservation project the Pack has committed to is to maintain the existing wildlife / bird viewing garden. The Pack will purchase material and perform maintenance three times a year for the viewing garden under the direction of the Creasey Mahan staff.

All work is performed by Cub Scouts between the ages of 7 and 10 years old. These projects benefit Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve, the Goshen Community, and the general population that enjoy the Preserve. The projects were financed with a few grants totaling $2500 from the Louisville Audubon Society. This is an excellent example of leveraging public funds to the benefit of the Scouts and the community.

If you’d like more information on about these grants you can contact Doug Morales, Pack 984 Cubmaster at dwmorales@yahoo.com.
