The Slaton Cub Scouts Troop took another step in growing Monday afternoon (Nov. 8) when the Lions Club received a charter from the Boy Scouts of America South Plains Council.
Cub Scout Pack 127 started in the summer of 2021.
Clyde Shannon presented the charter to the Lions Club.
“I’m a Cubmaster from way, way back, (and) I really love to watch adults come in, catch the fire of leading children,” he said. “It says some really neat stuff. Upon application through authorized representatives to carry the Scouting program, the character development, citizenship training, leadership and mental and physical fitness subject to the presidents current bylaws and rules.
“Family Pack 127 Slaton, Texas, is now officially a charter.”
Trevor Barnes is the person listed as the charter organization representative and received a patch.
Jeremy Barbee, Cubmaster of Pack 127 of Slaton, thanked everyone for the support given to create the pack,
And that’s just the start. “We would like to have some former scouters start a Troop for Boys and a Troop for Girls in Slaton,” he said. This would be an opportunity to help serve the youth of Slaton grades sixth-12th.”
They need to have adult leaders, and there also must be a minimum of five Scouts available to create a Troop.
Those interested in helping or would like more informaiton on the Scouts, contact Barbee, Cubmaster Pack 127 at 806-318-8576 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
