Delmont Cub Scout pack to come out of hibernation

A Delmont-based Cub Scout pack will be coming out of hibernation on Monday.

The pack, based out of Faith United Methodist Church, has been inactive for the past two years, but a re-established group will host its first public meeting on Oct. 17, 6:30 p.m. at the church, 305 Freeport Street in Delmont, and is actively seeking new members.

“We have seven boys ranging in age from 6 up to 11 who will be starting out on Monday,” said Jesse Bush, the Laurel Hills executive for the Boy Scout's Westmoreland-Fayette Council.

Delmont Borough Councilman David Piper, who is a former member of the Westmoreland-Fayette executive board, will serve as pack leader until he is able to find someone to be trained and serve in the position.

Bush said anyone interested in joining is welcome to attend the meeting.

“My whole motivation is that I want as many youths to be exposed to Scouts as possible,” he said. “I was a Scout starting at 6 years old, and all of my boys have been part of it. I see a lot of value in it.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
