Cub Scout Pack 82 recently celebrated a year of fun and adventure during its annual Blue and Gold Banquet.
Cubmaster Wil Hoffman was the emcee for the evening.
All of the Cub Scouts crossed over to their next earned rank and were given scarves and slides, which signified their new ranks. They were placed on each boy by their Akela, or Scout leader.
Excitement, fun and a sense of pride were shared by each Cub Scout, their leaders and family members in attendance.
Cub Scout Pack 82 meets at the Trinity Lutheran Church, Lehighton, which was also the site of the Blue and Gold Banquet. A delicious family-style meal was prepared by the women of Trinity Lutheran Church and was served by Boy Scout Troop 82.
