It has become a yearly tradition for Cub Scout Pack 923 in Orange to give back to its community every winter at its annual Pine Wood Derby Race. The cub scouts collect nonperishables and toiletries for the Orange Food Bank. The Pine Wood Derby is a perennial favorite event for Cub Scouts all around the country and the world to participate in every winter. Pack 923 took the fun one step further by “charging” an entry fee to participate in the race and requiring the Scouts to help collect items at a time of the year people often do not think of their local food banks.
Cub Scout Pack 923 is a very active pack of 40 boys and now are welcoming girls to come check out the adventures of Cub Scouting. Girls entering Kindergarten through 5th grade are encouraged to contact Pack 923 to join the newly created Family Cub Scouting group. Sisters have long been a part of our Pack. We have many siblings and sisters who were our “honorary cubs” and now girls will be able to become full-fledged members of Cub Scout Pack 923.
