Cub Scout Pack 62, located out of Sandshore School, held its annual Crossover Ceremony at the beginning of June.
This year the pack grew to 40 scouts, ranging from kindergarteners to fifth graders. Pack 62 is a very active pack, which started a tradition two years ago to honor and provide the Mt. Olive Police Department with a full Thanksgiving dinner so that Mt. Olive’s finest can enjoy a hot holiday meal for all they do in the town.
Every November, the Pack also runs a food drive and donates the proceeds to the Mt. Olive Food Pantry. The scouts and parents come together during the holiday season and collect new, unwrapped toys for a holiday toy drive. While the scouts are busy volunteering in the community, they also take part in some fun scouting events, such as building and launching rockets and the famous Pinewood Derby, attending football games, camping at West Point and the Sussex County Miners Stadium, participating in a Flag Day and Veterans Memorial ceremony with the other students at Sandshore School and the Mt. Olive Memorial Day Parade, where they would hand out sought-after ice pops while walking the parade trail.
The pack is guided by Cub Masters Jenevieve D’Amico and Scott Briggs, along with assistant Erika Foley. The pack prides itself in tradition and Scout spirit. Alumni of the pack, even after crossing over to Boy Scouts, often come to attend and assist at events for the younger boys.
