On March 22, three Webelos from Cub Scout Pack 417, were awarded the Arrow of Light at a special ceremony at Elks Lodge #2159.
The highest award in Cub Scouts is earned by Webelos that have been active participants in their den and are ready to join a Boy Scout troop. Many of the requirements for the Arrow of Light are intended to familiarize the scout with a local troop and hopefully, show him that crossing over into a troop is the next step to take in scouting. A scout that earns his Arrow of Light patch has also completed nearly all the requirements to earn the Scout badge in the troop, so he has already begun his Boy Scout trail.
The three boys from Cub Scout pack 417 who earned the Arrow of Light are: Austin Hollis (on left), Justin Brady (on right) and Zachary Ford (not shown).
Cub Scout Pack 417 meets at the Elks Lodge #2159, 810 16th Ave SE, Largo.
