A formal ceremony was held on Monday, April 29, at Bradley Hall to award five boys of Pack 30, Den 4, with the highest rank in cub scouts – The Arrow of Light. The ceremony served as a dual purpose of giving the boys their last rank of Cub scouting and welcoming them to Boy Scout Troop 4049 Troy with a Cross Over Ceremony.

At the Cross Over ceremony, the cub scouts literally walk over a bridge to be greeted by Boy Scouts of Troop 4049 who welcome them as new members of the Troop by giving them an official Troop neckerchief, slide, and epaulets.

The five to 11-year-old cub scouts who earned their Arrow of light have been members of Pack 30 since the age of seven, starting out as Tigers, the 1st rank in cub scouts. They have meet all requirements with each rank thru the mentorship of their den leader, Eileen Slater, who has been with them since the beginning of their Cub Scout trail.

Slater stated, “As sad as it is to see the end of our cub scouting days together, I am letting go with pride of the work we did to get this far and I am excited to see them flourish in Boy Scout Troop 4049.”
