Cub Scouts host historic local recruitment event for boys & girls

Submitted by on August 13, 2020 – 12:10 amNo Comment

The Cub Scouts are holding a historic recruitment event in Alpena this weekend.

For the first time in history, scouts are welcoming 5 to 10 year-old boys and girls to the program.

According to organizers, the idea to allow girls into Cub Scouts is to bring families together “making it easier for parents to have all of their children participate in the same character-building fun and adventure programs.”

The recruitment event is being held at the Alpena County Fairgrounds Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Families can learn about the program, have their questions answered and register their sons and daughters at the event.
