Cub Scout Pack 1776

Kiwanis Danville 4th of July Parade WINNERS

That's right, Pack 1776, WINNERS!

Winners, not only because the judges among the parade organizers, the Kiwanis Club of Danville, gave us top honors in the Scout Unit category.

Winners, not only because our scouts and their parents braved the long ride and walk, intense heat and unrelenting sun.

Winners, not only because our scouts offered their holiday weekend to wash the Huey, arrive early and support the local Vietnam Veteran's organization.

Winners, because on the day of our country's birthday, engaging the crowd with our cheers "U-S-A" and "Cub -Scouts" and "seventeen-SEVENTY SIX" we made the positive impression on our community that I hope our boys will continue to make into their adult years. To serve without seeking reward, to work without whiiiiiiiining, to contribute to our society without groping for recognition.

Did I mention we didn't even have our pack banner? No kidding, we entertained the audience with our pack yells, our enthusiasm, and our charming personalities.

From Den Leader Harry Beck, reaching out to awe-inspired watchers, as he rode left-side, spreading the word about the history of the Huey.

Or from Den Leader Ammy Pluth and Stella Lei, riding right side, leading the scouts in cheers.

Or from Den Leaders Alan Lei and Ada Ip, leading the ground forces who ran along the side of the helicopter, namely the tireless families and parents, like mobile infantry.

And the boys? A great bunch of troopers of whom I am proud. They made it known who we are...seventeen SEVENTY SIX!

Many thanks again to Earle, our heroic host who made this great ride a reality. To Evelyn Chin, the event organizer. To the parents of our boys for their limitless support.

And thanks to the boys who rode the Huey and marched in a very special parade. Not surprising, the theme of the parade this year was "Recognizing Our Future Leaders." Meet our future leaders, the Winners of Pack 1776.
