Area Scouts have been busy helping feed the hungry and honor our deceased veterans. Scouts from Jackman to Camden took part in the Scouting for Food Drive which collected hundreds of pounds of food to help fill shelves in local food pantries. Pittsfield Troop #428 hosted a Senior Dinner to Go program on December 9 at the Sebasticook Valley Elks serving up hot dogs, baked beans, corn and cornbread in Covid-compliant meals to go kits. Scouts from Winthrop, Augusta, and West Gardiner placed wreaths on the graves of those who served our nation. This was as part of the nationwide Wreaths Across America Day. Some Scouts helped place wreaths at the cemeteries at Togus, others helped at the Veterans Cemeteries in Augusta and at the veterans’ burial spots in West Gardiner. In all, Scouts helped honor hundreds of veterans this holiday season.
