The BSA has announced modifications to Cub Scouting that make the program more flexible for busy parents, den leaders and Cubmasters. See changes here. Some mandatory requirements are now optional, giving leaders more control over their den program.  

From empty shelves to fully stocked. Together we collected 27,330 pounds of food - wow! Check out photos here. Hundreds of Scouts and parent volunteers rallied to help the needy in a phenomenal effort!
