Ben the Boy Scout!
Ben is officially a Boy Scout. He received his Arrow of Light (Cub Scouting's highest honor) in February, and "crossed over" to the Boy Scouts. He is in a very large and active troop, which promises to be a lot of fun!
All three of his grandparents were there for the banquet when he got his Arrow of Light, which thrilled him! His first meeting with the troop was a Court of Honor, when boys are recognized for their achievements during the past six months. He and the others who just crossed over received their "Scout" rank that night, since they had met all the requirements.
Now, he looks forward to his first summer camp, and all the other excitement of his first year as a Boy Scout!
