Cub Scouts of Pack 98, Brodheadsville, held its Blue and Gold banquet and advancement ceremonies Feb. 22 at Pleasant Valley Elementary School.
Friends of Scouting gave a presentation asking for help to pay the $270 cost of a boy in Cub Scouting, calling it the "best investment you can make."
Den Chief Christopher Curtis, who organized the program, sang a prayer followed by the invocation by the Rev. Sean Carpenter.
"Thank you for the core values we teach these young men," Carpenter said.
The troop is sponsored by Our Lady Queen of Peace Church.
