There’s a new Cub Scout pack in La Mirada and it’s ready for YOU!

Cub Scout Pack 815 recently opened up its’ membership to boys attending Gardenhill, Escalona, and Foster Road Elementary schools.  Although not limited to this area, Pack 815 is working alongside the long running pack, Pack 919, in La Mirada to offer their scouting program to more youth in the area.

“Often as parents, we think the only extra-curricular activity our boys have is sports related.  But my oldest son wasn’t a big sports lover.  He was the kid that loved Legos and building things more so than being part of a competitive team sport,” explained Sandra Green, the new Cubmaster of Pack 815.  “I never imagined that by my son joining Cub Scouts he would be exposed to the rich diversity amongst boys his own age but also learn how to take on challenges as an individual and part of a team.”

Green, who was part of Pack 919 for nearly seven years, took on the challenge herself to start a new pack in La Mirada.  “I volunteered for years in Pack 919.  Whether it was organizing our annual popcorn sales or helping with our Scouting for Food campaign, every aspect of it I loved!  A big part of my heart still lies within Pack 919 as so many good friends are still leaders there."

She continued, "Our Cubmaster, Louis Garcia, inspired me to lead and we will continue to help lead our youth at community events.  When the opportunity presented itself to start a new pack, I couldn’t pass it up.  Pack 919 has over 80 families and we want to continue supporting our local boys so this smaller sized pack seemed the best way to still deliver the scouting program.”
