The Cub Scouts brought to us… a very boy-ish tree ready to return to the woods!
CUB SCOUTS CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
Decorated by Cub Scout Pack 79
Happy Birthday Cub Scouts! Founded in 1910, the Scouts have had a very long tradition, including here in Andover. Decorating a tree loaded with pinewood derby cars, council patches, earned badges and achievement award ribbons, Cub Scout Pack 79 of Andover is proud to represent Scouting here at the Christmas Tree Exhibit.
Inspired by some of the Cub Scouting gear and uniforms in our collection, you could definitely say that Cub Scout Pack 79 did their best in decorating this scouting themed tree! Like the other scout tree, they worked with with boys from all over the town to create enough ornaments to fill an entire tree. Ranging from pristinely constructed pinewood derby racers to event patches from past museum sleepovers and outdoor adventures – these boys clearly have a creative touch!
The display under the tree skirt has even more great detail with a full camping stove, lantern, sleeping bag – and of course some scouting books – all ready to go on the next big camping trip!
