Support for the Boy Scout movement came at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country.
Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as Veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.
In Groton, Post 800 is pleased to have sponsored Cub Scout Pack 10 for many years and has assisted the pack with its annual Pinewood Derby, providing official judges and prizes for the winners. Fortunately, Pack 10 is a very active pack, thanks to the commitment of some very dedicated parents in the community and the interest of their sons. If you are the parent of a boy or girl in the Groton area from 7 to 10 years of age who has some interest in this program, please contact Ms. Shana Snyder at 898-3670. Also, check them out on Facebook.
