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.”
