Scout Blue and Gold
Every year at the end of February the Cub Scouts of America celebrate their anniversary with what they call the Blue and Gold Dinner. An appropriate name for the celebration as the colors of the Cub Scout uniforms and neckerchiefs are blue and gold.
Mulino Cub Scout Pack 161 has enough boys to make up five separate units, which they call dens.
This years celebration was held at the Molalla Church of the Nazarene and the boys were all decked out in their full dress uniforms. The night was full of fun skits put on by each den of boys, and as a real treat the Boy Scout Troop 161 came and put on a skit for the younger boys.
The highlight of the evening was handing out awards. Every single Cub Scout in the program earned a rank advancement, which means they have been working hard to earn the required badges and acquiring the skills to move forward in the program. A lot of volunteer hours are put in by the parents and leaders to achieve this level of success.
The Spring Bazaar, sponsored by the Mulino Parent Group, will be Saturday, March 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is an opportunity to see some of our local crafters and vendors items and purchase unique and creative things. Holidays like St. Patricks Day and Easter are coming up fast, as well as the wedding and graduation season. You just may find the perfect gift for any occasion.
Clackamas County 2014 survey going on now
Clackamas County residents are invited to go online and take the 2014 Clackamas County Community Survey. The survey measures public attitudes about county services and major issues of importance. Citizens can take the survey at www.clackamas.us.
The survey will remain online through Friday, April 4. Many citizens who live in rural areas tend to not participate in these surveys, but then complain when it seems like the rural areas aren't being respected or listened to by county leaders. The comments gathered through these surveys really are a valuable tool for all citizens to have a say in local government matters.
