Cub Scouts from Pack 883 were quite surprised to have an extra pair of hands…er, wings as the case may be…to hand out the awards at our May Pack Meeting. As a special surprise, the Oriole Bird showed up at our baseball/softball themed Pack Meeting on May 23 – and the Cub Scouts are still laughing.
Before the meeting, the boys played softball and earned the Softball Belt Loop (thanks to the coordination of Dean Carroll and a host of parents) and feasted on delicions ballpark food (prepared by Cindy Knies and her team of cooks and helpers). Former Cub Scout (and current den chief) Ben Carroll wore his umpire uniform and called balls and strikes.
We recognized the tremendous contribution of outgoing Committee Chair, Mark Crampton, and welcomed his replacement, Diane Wolf. Mark has served Pack 883 in a variety of roles for the past 10 years.
Then, the Oriole Bird flew in to joke around with our Scouts and their families – and to help present the advancement awards for this month. The Scouts learned pretty quickly that it was good thing to have an Orioles hat on…and not a good thing to have a Tampa Bay hat (right, Mr. Ray?). Thankfully, there were only a few Red Sox fans…and no Yankee fans…in the crowd!
