Welcome New Committee Members
Welcome to our newest committee members! Karen Spivey is the 2014 District Chair, Jim Carden the District Commissioner, and Gayle Pack the new Activities Chairman. We look forward to a great year in the Black Fox District.

Cub Scouts
Webelos Scouts from McMinnville Pack 888 recently attended a City Council meeting and were given the opportunity to ask questions of City officials. The mayor was asked if he got paid, how long he could be mayor, and “how did you become mayor”? City officials were delighted to share how the Cub Scouts can serve their community.

Winter Camporee
Winter Camporee was held at Parish Reservation on January 31 to February 2. The theme was “Kickin It”. Troops constructed a kicking machine friendly competition to see who could “kick” the longest distance. All had a great time.

Troop 499 Honors Longtime Scoutmaster
Members and families of Troop 499-Rock Island honored longtime Scoutmaster Johnny Haston for his service. Troop 499 recently had three boys complete Eagle Rank. Johnny stated “That is my reward, when they reach Eagle Scout. In Scouts, the boys have fun, but they also learn to work. They learn discipline and character. These are boys you can trust. For me, Scouting is more important than all other activities.” Well stated, Johnny! Thank you for all you do for the young men of Troop 499.
