Scout Update

The Exeter Cub Scout Pack 218 and Cordova Boy Scout Troop 359
were able to collect 292 pounds of food in the communities of Exeter and Milligan. The food was delivered to Blue Valley Community Action in Geneva, Nebraska where it is part of the Feinstein Challenge Donations. Each pound or dollar will be matched by this grant up to $40,000.

Also, the Exeter Cub Scouts pack 218 recently participated in the Adopt A Stream Program that is sponsored by the EPA, Doane College, Public Health Solutions and the Nebraska Wildlife Federation.

The boys learned how to perform six tests on water learning about turbidity, ph levels,

temperature, dissolved oxygen, hardness and alkalinity. Most of the tests were multiple step processes.
After practicing the tests, the boys took their skills to the field and tested a local stream. They will test again in April and their results will be posted online.

In the final scout update Joey Bartu recently participated in the
Prairie Winds District Pinewood Derby. Joey entered in the Stock Show category and won first place in the district.
