The global pandemic caused by COVID-19 did not stop scouting in its tracks, nor Cub Scout Pack 107’s commitment to it’s adoption of Grafton’s Norcross Park. Pack 107 adopted Norcross Park in 2017, and has committed to monthly clean ups and maintenance of the park and Miner Field, during the non snowy months of the year. The cub scouts and their families work together to help with picking up trash, weeding, spring and fall clean ups, and mulching of the playground area.
On August 30th, the cub scouts and their families spent a beautiful Sunday morning weeding the Norcross Park playground, wearing masks and keeping a safe distance from each other.
Per the Scout Law, a scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. The adoption of Norcross Park is helping our cub scouts with how these scout laws apply to a being a civic minded youth, and develop skills to be strong future leaders.
The scouting program has a strong outdoor component, and it teaches our cub scouts to be respectful and responsible in the outdoors. The Outdoor Code states:
“As an American, I will do my best to-
- Be clean in my outdoor manners,
- Be careful with fire,
- Be considerate in the outdoors, and
- Be conservation minded.”
