Nine scouts from Pack 30 arrived on Saturday at Rock Meadow in Belmont with their families, ready for their last action as Cub Scouts: They were going to cross over to BSA Troop 30.
Pack 30 scouts walked with Cub Scoutmaster Taylor Boas to a hill where Troop 30 was waiting, with the U.S. and troop flags flying in the wind.
Using planks labeled with the points of the Scout Law — trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent — the BSA scouts built a bridge for Cub Scouts to literally cross over to their side. “This is your first step on the bridge to Eagle,” Troop 30 Scoutmaster Doug Syer said, and after remarks from den leaders Stephen Lipscomb, Steve Owens and Alex Bush, each scout crossed the bridge with his family.
