Scouting News
As with everything else, Covid 19 has slowed down the Scouts but it hasn’t stopped them! Your Cub Scout pack has been meeting via Zoom (online group chat) and will be doing a drive-in style awards ceremony in the coming weeks. They have been camping at home and having group campfires via video! Troop 76 has also been meeting via Zoom and we have had several scouts make rank advancements! We met on 6/26 and had four new Scouts join the Troops. We did opening and elections via Zoom then split out to work on advancements.

Boy Scout Pack 614 Going Strong!
It is my pleasure to share that CubScout Pack 614, which is chartered by our Lodge, is alive and thriving! We serve about 60 youth in Kindergarten through 5th grades. We just “bridged” 11 Cub Scouts from our Pack into local Boy Scout Troops as they earned their Arrow of Light award and move forward on their Scouting adventure.
    The Pack also held their annual Pinewood Derby race at our Lodge last Sunday, March 10th! We had about 40 cars entered and it was a lot of fun! The Lodge also hosted the Annual Antelope Valley District Dinner. We recognized three adult leaders with the District Award of Merit.We also recognized one young 7 year old Cub Scout for the National Heroism Award.
 This young Cub Scout, Sean Malbrough, found his Grandfather unresponsive on their kitchen floor and had the presence of mind to call 911, remain calm, lock up the family dogs, and let the firefighters into the house to help. His Grandfather made a full recovery, thanks to this young man’s presence of mind and training in Cub Scouts.
    We also have a Scouts BSA Troop #76 for girls that meets in our Lodge every Friday night. They are chartered by our AV Emblem Club #76. The Troop is 10 young ladies who are working on their Eagle Scout award as they camp, hike and do Community Service. Pictured are some of our Scouts doing a Flag ceremony for the Emblem Club. Troop 76 would like to invite any Elk who is interested to attend our first ever Court of Honor awards ceremony on April 26th at 6pm! The Scouts have been working hard and will be earning a variety of awards and rank advancements

Scouting Report
Our Cub Scout Pack #614 is doing really well. They have opted to become a “family pack and will be including all girl Dens into the Unit.
I know many people believe that Boy Scouts of America should remain boys only, but let me share my opinion… many of the siblings have been going to, and participating in, the same program for many years, but they haven’t been able to get the recognition just because they are female.
    The restructuring into Scouts, BSA now opens the program so that ALL youth can benefit from it and the young ladies will get the recognition they deserve for their participation. I would be totally against it myself if the units went coed. At the Cub level, grades K-5, they are in separate dens. At the Scout level Grade 6 and above they will remain in separate Troops. Boys will be only with boys and have their much needed guy time. Girls will be in all girl units, allowing them to get the full benefit of the program and its life and leadership skills.
    I am happy to say that I am very excited to be part of the first Young Ladies Troop and am thrilled that our Elks Lodge has offered their support for Scouting through the use of the facilities as needed.
We had a Meet-n-Greet event on October 12th and had 4 girls come & find out about Scouting. They had a campfire and made s’mores, played games and really just had a fun evening.
Thank you, Lodge #1625, for your support!
