Finishing up their Cub Scout career, 11 boys receive their Arrow of Light achievement at the Pack 923 Annual Awards Blue & Gold Banquet. They are all students at Race Brook School and celebrated the year with the entire pack at West River Hall in West Haven. Orange First Selectman Jim Zeoli was one of the first to formally congratulate the new Boy Scouts encouraging them to continue on with their scouting career and community service. Cub Master Rick Sweeney added, “We are proud of all the boys this year with their promotions, but we are especially proud of our Weblos because it is unusual to have so many reaching the Arrow of Light level in one pack at one time.” The ceremony included a formal acceptance into Boy Scouts by Troop 925 leader John Wesolowski.
Thirty-two boys in total moved on to their next level of scouting at the dinner. “We still have a few more group events before the school year ends including the Town of Orange Memorial Day Parade and the CT Yankee Council Famoree event weekend,” said Mike Antalik the incoming Cub Master. The Pack invites any prospective new scout to come find them at the beginning or end of the parade route to find out more about next year’s events.
