This marks Sam's last year as a Cub Scout and he is now journeying on into the Boy Scouts. He has been active in the scouts since kindergarten and loves all of the adventures it has taken him on...from sleeping on the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier to caving into the depths of Raccoon Mountain.
He had his "Crossing Over" ceremony last week which officially declared him as a Boy Scout!
**Cesar has been his leader for all five years of scouting. What a great leader and role model for Sam to work with!

Sam also received the "Arrow of Light" award. This is the highest ranking award given to a Cub Scout. To receive this, the scout must meet all Cub and Webelos requirements, earn all achievement badges and learn the Scout Law and Scout Promise. Way to go, big guy!!
Sam will have his first Scout troop meeting later this month. He's looking forward to meeting the new guys and embarking on new adventures!
