On Thursday, February 27, 2020, the Wolf den toured the El Cerrito Fire Department station as part of the Hometown Heroes Adventure. For this adventure, the Wolves learn about citizens who are heroes in their local communities.
The Wolf Den Leader guide says:
“In this adventure, Wolf Scouts will learn about the heroes within their community. By getting to know some real-life heroes and honoring their service, the Wolves will see the importance of living the Scout Oath and Scout Law, and gain an understanding of what makes a hero.”
When asked what he liked most about his trip to the El Cerrito Fire Department, Dylan said “my favorite part of the fire station was seeing their tools, like the sledgehammer and chainsaw.”
Thank you to Alia for coordinating this fun community trip. Kids loved it!

This year’s Blue & Gold Banquet at Camp Herms was a great success. It was very well-attended, the potluck contributions were of course fantastic, the skits were fun, lively and entertaining, and the spirit and energy were very positive.
With all of the awards announcements, it is obvious that these scouts have made tremendous progress in their respective goals and achievements.
There were quite a few contributions to the cake auction this year. Check out these amazing cakes our Scouts baked for the auction! See you all again next year!
About Blue & Gold
Blue and gold banquets are a tradition within packs, celebrating the leaders and parents who volunteer to make Cub Scouting fantastic. Sometimes former pack members return to blue and gold banquets. Often special Scouting or community leaders are invited to attend or speak to Cub Scouts in attendance. Some packs also use the banquet as a chance to celebrate the accomplishments of Scouts, themselves.
