JJ Visits Metuchen Matters to Discuss An Active Year In Cub Scouting

| No Comments
jjatmetuchenmatters2.jpgMetuchen Matters had a visit from JJ, a local Cub Scout who came to share some of the exciting events that his den and pack enjoyed throughout this last year, their first in the organization.

Having completed a scrapbooking event that was a requirement for his TIGER badge - MYSELF AND MY FAMILY - on Friday night, the scouts had been looking over their personal pictures of all their adventures this year. They put all their materials together into a book that each scout could keep. Among the events they most enjoyed, JJ said a museum sleepover at Philly's Franklin Institute was the best. The conscientious young scouts also put their energies towards many community service projects, including Thanksgiving boxes for needy families and Holiday poppers distributed to folks at the Metuchen Senior Center.

JJ stressed that all the activities are supposed to help scouts better use the tenets of Scout Law, including Obey the Rules of the Pack! These important lessons will be put to good use at their year-end celebration, which will take place at Stokes State Forest, NJ, this June. This annual family camping trip is the first one for these youngest scouts -- JJ practiced putting up a tent at home and will now get a chance, with his den and pack, to put one up in the wild!

JJ has been going there for many years now and he was able to demonstrate the 11 Swords during this karate and self-defense demonstration - he even managed to pin his teacher with all she has taught him!

With all of these events, the boys have earned their TIGER badge - this is their Tiger Cub year and all the electives that were required throughout the year have been completed. We wish JJ and all the scouts the best as they prepare to move into their second year of what sounds like a fantastic scouting experience!
