Croton-on-Hudson’s Cub Scout Pack 28 had two of its scouts, Brian (center in picture next to brother Kevin) and Daniel (right in picture), recognized this past Wednesday night at the beautiful Durland Scout Center in Rye, NY for their outstanding efforts in raising money for the Westchester-Putnam Council’s 2006 William E. Kelly Bowl-O-Ree.
Brian and Daniel were 2 of the top 30 scouts in money raised for the Bowl-O-Ree. Brian, who raised $366, and Daniel, who raised $306, should be congratulated for their outstanding efforts when considering that the W-P Council has more than 10,000 scouts. Brian raised the 11th highest amount of money and Daniel raised the 16th highest amount of money district-wide! The 30 scouts at the event on Wednesday received prizes to recognize their achievement.
The funds raised during the annual event go toward supporting special needs youths throughout the Westchester-Putnam Council’s region. The scouts who participated in the event—held in February—not only had lots of fun bowling but helped out in a very worthy cause. The event overall raised more than $45,000 and Croton’s Pack 28 raised over $1,700 itself.
