March 2023


March is an exciting month for the Cub Scout Pack in that this is when the annual Pinewood Derby is held.  Given a block of wood to shape and paint/decorate as they desire, along with wheels and axles, Cubs are very creative in what they build.  The cars are then raced down a track with winners in each division qualifying for a district event (5 counties in Northwest Ohio).  Siblings as well as parents/guardians are welcome to participate as well in their own race division.  Most importantly, the event is fun for all!


The Troop has grown by 9 as Arrow of Light Cubs have crossed over due to age.  This will add numbers as the Troop begins planning for a summer camp experience at Camp Lakota. 


Service to others is a very important part of Scouting.  Thus, both the Pack and Troop will be participating in the annual Scouting for Food campaign, a national program of the Boy Scouts of America.  On March 4, Scouts from St. John will be passing out door hangars in a number of Defiance neighborhoods. Other Defiance Packs and Troops will be doing the same in other areas so that the entire city will be solicited for non-perishable food items.  Scouts will then return to the neighborhoods on March 11 to pick up the items and transport them back to local food pantries.  All items collected by Pack 75 and Troop 75 will be brought to the St. John Food Pantry.


Youth and adults are always welcome to attend pack and troop events to learn more about the program.  Questions at any time can be addressed to Mike Saxton, Chartered Organization Representative, at 419-439-2079.
