Troop 151 holds Pinewood Derby

Pack 151 enjoyed the annual Pinewood Derby on March 12 at Quincy Elementary School. Youth from Kindergarten through 6th grade participated by creating their own cars to race. Families joined in the fun, also, as well as Scouts from Troop 151.

The enthusiastic crowd enjoyed snacks, pizza, face painting, and the main event – Pinewood Derby races! The Scouts are thankful for the support of the families and community who contributed to make this happen.

Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills, and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. Scouts BSA provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to 1) Try new things, 2) Provide service to others, 3) Build self-confidence, and 4) Reinforce ethical standards.
