Cub Scout Pack 71of Steilacoom held its annual Blue and Gold Banquet on February 16th at Steilacoom High School. The banquet included the Arrow of Light and Crossover Ceremony.
Webelos Scouts from the Wolf and Wolverine Patrols earned their Arrow of Light Award in the end of 2005 and were awarded their Badge, an Arrow of Light arrow and a plaque. The Arrow of Light badge is the highest badge a Cub Scout can earn, Cubs that earn it will continue to wear the badge throughout their scouting career.
The eight Arrow of Light recipients were: Jermyiah Blevins of Steilacoom, Robert Chadwick of DuPont, Jared Collins of Steilacoom, Conner Lang of Steilacoom, Jared Stalder of Steilacoom, Andrew Wilson of Steilacoom, Matthew Lewis of Lakewood and AJ McReynolds of Lakewood.
The evening also included a graduation ceremony for the scouts; Steilacoom Boy Scout Troop 71 provided a rope bridge for all the boys to crossover to the troops. The Scouts had evaluated the local Troops and picked a Troop to best fit their individual needs to carry them forward through their Boy Scout years and (hopefully to earn and become Eagle Scouts). The boys graduated to one of the following Troops: Steilacoom Troop # 71, Lakewood Troop # 51 or Lakewood Troop # 53, which had representatives on hand to receive their newest scouts.
There were approximately 150 people in attendance to honor the 8 boys for their accomplishments. Guests included other Cub Scouts and their families, Boy Scouts, Scoutmasters, Family members and Pacific Harbors Council Staff.
