Libby, Troy Cub Scouts collect food for local pantries

Nov. 25—In the spirit of giving, two local Cub Scout Packs worked to collect a substantial amount of food recently.

The Cub Scouts of Pack 4925 in Libby and Troy collected nearly a ton of food for local food pantries on Nov. 12, 2022.

The Libby Cub Scouts gathered 1,217 pounds of food for Libby Food Pantry.

Troy Scouts gathered food for Troy Baptist Food Pantry, but they didn't have a scale to get a weight.

Both packs are thankful to the residents of Libby and Troy for their donations.

A few Den Chiefs from Troop 1971 also assisted in the drive.

Area scouts have been busy this fall.

According to information on their Facebook page, Troop 1971 and Pack 4925 presented and retired the colors at the Kootenai Valley Christian School's Veterans Day program on Nov. 11 while several Cubs and Scouts were in presentations by the respective grades at KVCS.

Pack 4925 also held a paper airplane derby on Nov. 5, hiked the old U.S. 2 Trail on Oct. 29 and had its bike rodeo on Oct. 21 at the Troy Roosevelt Park where Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Neil Durham taught bike safety and etiquette as well as taking care of bikes.
