Garfield Night set for Cub Scouts "I promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people, and to obey the Law of the Pack" More than 2 million boys make this promise every year as a mem- ber of the Cub Scouts. This neigh- borhood-centered program for boys in grades 1 through 5 com- bines fun and adventure with skills and verbal development. Today's world is complicated. Work, school, family, religion, sports and extracurricular activi- ties pull parents and youth in many directions. Parents want their sons to grow to be a self-re- liant, dependable and caring indi- vidual. Research conducted by Louis Harris & Association indicates that one year in Cub Scouting provides a boy with a healthy, safe environment in which he learns important values and de- velops self-confidence. The re- search also indicates that the pro- gram provides a forum in which parents and sons spend quality time together going places, doing projects, talking and reading. The DeI-Mar-Va Council, Boy Scouts of America, is set to unveil a new Cub Scout "spokescat," Garfield. "We're excited to have Garfield involved in Club Scouting," said Scout executive Jim Gentry. "This is a great opportunity to tell the Scouting story and get families involved. Remember that today's youth are tomorrow's leaders. We have the opportunity to make a difference for the future of Amer- ica?' All boys in first through fifth grade are invited to join Cub Scouting during the Garfield School Night for Scouting Round-up in September. Contact the Del-Mar-Va Council at 302- 622-3320 or 800-766-7268 for more information or to find the closest Cub Scout pack in your lo- cation.
