On the morning of May 4, North Reading’s Hillview Country Club hosted Pack 731‘s annual Blue & Gold Banquet – the culmination of the Cub Scouting year.

The year was very special for us as Jacob, who has been a hard working and dedicated Scout since joining as a Tiger, was awarded The Arrow of Light – Cub Scouting’s highest honor – and made the symbolic crossover from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  We’re all VERY proud of him!!

All of the cubs at the event had a great time enjoying the buffet and the karaoke and dancing that followed.  Here’s the whole tribe with Jake and his buddy Nathan, who else completed his crossover, on the bridge in back.  What a herd!!

This was also a bit of a crossover for John as he’ll be ending his direct association with the Pack. Though he’ll still be involved in his role as Unit Commissioner, he’s passed the Cubmaster reins on to his pal Bonnie who has put her own spin on things… She’s great!!

    I knew it… I just knew it!

    I knew Jake had a bounce to his step and a lightness on his feet with pointed direction! It was The Arrow of Light!

    Congrats, Jake! We’re proud.

    And thanks for being on my team yesterday at the Triathlon by the Sea, because although I didn’t win any of the handouts, you nearly nabbed me a gift certificate for bike related material, because when ever you called out to the guy handing things out, he looked over. Oh so close! Thanks!

    And congrats once again!

    As someone who only got up to Bobcat level in the Cub Scouts, I still know how special that achievement is. Congratulations to Jacob and everyone else!
