Kiwanis donates to Cub Scouts
Marion Kiwanis donated $200 to Cub Scouts Pack 102 on Tuesday after a presentation by pack leader Javan Koehn.
Koehn said the pack is trying to raise fund for camping equipment because of the number of campouts the scouts go on. The weekend of April 20, they went to a camping event at the state fairgrounds in Hutchinson. This Friday and Saturday they will have a campout and fishing derby at the county lake.
Koehn also said the pack is looking for a storage trailer to haul equipment to campouts.
After the event in Hutchinson, the pack flag went missing. Koehn reported it stolen to Marion police. It is blue and gold, and several ribbons are attached at the top. Koehn said the ribbons are of irreplaceable historical significance for the pack, representing past accomplishments.
Koehn is working to recruit scouts and tiger cubs. Anyone interested in joining Cub Scouts can contact him at (316) 249-8634 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kiwanis also decided to take over sponsorship of the annual Easter egg hunt at Central Park, which the Marion County Record has been sponsoring for several years.
