The award is made available annually on the basis of one for each 25 traditional units. Thank you, Howard and Jeff for your service over the years as Cub Scout leaders, Boy Scout leaders, and District Committee members in the James E. West District.

Pack 18
Westminster Presbyterian Church has chartered a new Cub Scout pack in west Nashville. Pack 18 was organized to serve families primarily at the church and the Ensworth School. Westminster had not sponsored a pack in years, and Pack 18 had been chartered to Ensworth in the 1980s. With one pack meeting, 14 boys have advanced to Bobcat rank and over 20 new families have joined the Scouting community.

Pack 21 Volunteers at Second Harvest Food Bank
On Thursday, February 26, boys from Cub Scout Pack 21 volunteered at Second Harvest Food Bank. Every Friday, Second Harvest sends "backpacks" to schools. Those backpacks contain food that is distributed to students. Without these backpacks, many school children will go the weekend without eating.

The boys of Pack 21 packed 1,200 backpacks!!!!! That is 1,200 boys and/or girls that will have something to eat on Saturday and Sunday!!
