There is a sign-up for Cub Scouts Pack 117 for all boys and girls age kindergarten through fifth grade on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The time for the sign-ups will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Hiawatha Elementary School, 600 Miami St. Bring $14 to sign up for the Scouts — Boys Life magazine is optional for an additional $5.

Meet local pack leaders and begin your scouting journey. After sign-ups, regular meetings will start with each den, or grade level. On Oct. 19, all Scouts and their families are invited to Spooktacular Saturday at Camp Geiger, which features shooting sports, a haunted house and haunted hayrides. Fundraising is encouraged and supported by the pack to cover the costs of camps and other program expenses so that families can minimize out of pocket expenses.
