The local cub scouts of Gillespie Pack 51 have been busy learning about Scout Sunday and the duty and roles of the first responders in the community.
Five members of the group attended Scout Sunday at First Baptist Church in Gillespie on Sunday, February 4 with Pastor Jared DePoppe and Ken Garwood. Included in the visit were Caleb Ellis, Xavier Burch, Cole Williamson and Graham Striegel.
On the following day, February 5, cub scouts visited the Gillespie Fire Department learning about the role of the firefighters and their equipment. Tyler Link and Colin Mussato volunteered their time to help the group. Officer Stephenson of the Gillespie Police Department also stopped by to explain the role of police in the BenGil community.
Attending the event included Cole Williamson, Caleb Ellis, Mikey Hedden, Graham Striegel and Xavier Burch. The boys were able to view the fire trucks, an ambulance, and a police car.
The cub scout group thanks everyone who volunteered their time.
