Cub Scout Packs 38 and 101 held their annual crossover and promotion ceremony on Saturday. Twenty-seven Cub Scouts were received into a new den in the Trion and Summerville packs.
Two of the scouts made history as being the first Lion Scouts in Chattooga County, and were promoted to the Tiger Den.
Bentley Holcomb and Lucas Kalnay are pictured below, receiving their Lion rank patches and Tiger neckerchiefs.
Boy Scout Troop 7 members were also in attendance, welcoming the 5 of the 7 scouts who were promoted to the Troop. To be promoted to the next den or troop, each scout must complete several requirements throughout the year, including community service projects, fulfilling their duty to God and country, and demonstrating knowledge of the Scout Oath and Scout Law in their everyday lives. Pack 38 Cubmaster Trey Goble commented on the ceremony:
“I’m really proud of all the Scouts we recognized this weekend, and the hard work that is put in by volunteers and leaders from all three units in Chattooga County. All of our units have had year over year growth for the last 3-4 years, and I’m eager to see where we’ll be 4 years from now.”

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
