This year the Pack Committee and I are proud to announce that Pack 60 Sudbury will be partnering with the Boys and Girls Club of Assabet Valley (Sudbury-Stow- Maynard-Concord-Acton). The Assabet Valley Club, based in Maynard, has 400 members serving nearly 700 children per year, 57% from low to moderate income circumstances.
The Committee and I thought that partnering with the Club would help raise awareness of this great organization as well as give our boys additional opportunities for community service events which will make a difference. Please note there are many Cub Scout advancements, badges and awards that require community service projects.
For our first partnership activity, Pack 60 Parents and Scouts are being asked to volunteer to work the Annual 5K Road Race in Maynard with the proceeds benefiting the Club on Saturday, September 15th. Pack 60 is a sponsor this year for the race. The Club is in need of:
8-10 Cub Scouts (Bear and Webelos only) for the main road race from 9am-12pm. Half the time will be spent on Arts and Crafts, half the time working the main race route. Another 8-10 Cub Scouts (Tiger-Webelos) are needed from 10:30am-12pm to work the Kids one mile road race. Cub Scouts are asked to wear their scout uniform. We would need 1 parent minimum for every 2-3 Cub Scouts.
I would ask you e-mail or call Dan Maier, Dbmaier@comcast.net, 978-261-5445, and your respective den leader and let him/her know if you can volunteer by Thursday, September 6th.
