There is a new Cub Scout Pack in Coushatta. Pack 70 began a couple of months ago and they are using the summer to get organized and get their leaders trained. They conducted a fundraiser on Saturday June 17th to build up the Pack account.
Pack 70 is chartered to Treasured Moments Child Development Center located on Edgar Street. Sharekia Winn is the Charter Organization Representative. Joey Freeman is the new Cubmaster.
The Cubs washed cars and had a bake sale recently in the Rivertown Market parking lot. Freeman says they are raising money to buy uniforms and other needed equipment for the Pack. Freeman said, “The scouting year kicks off in August. We got a start late in the year, so we are trying to get everything together so when it does kick off we’ll be ready to go.”
Winn said, “At present there are about 17 boys in Pack 70. They’re excited about it and getting ready for the fall.” Winn added, “The money we are raising will go to get the boys uniforms and other needed items so they can have a good experience.”
After this fundraiser, Winn says the Pack will take the rest of the summer off. She expects they will be ready to kick off in August.
