Scouts Celebrate Firsts In Adams

Posted: Updated:

It was an evening of firsts for the 586 Scouting program in southern Jefferson County.

About 50 people attended the open house at the Adams Volunteer Fire Hall, where the program welcomed a new Cub Scout pack.

It's also the first time girls are participating.

"Traditionally, boys were able to join Cub Scouts, but now both boys and girls can join Boy Scouts, so it's pretty exciting," program chair Jay Matteson said, "and we have quite a few girls already joining the pack."

Matteson says the 586 Scouts were formed in 2013 and since then they've traveled to seven states, Canada and Scotland.

Six of those scouts are working on their Eagle badges.
