2015 March 29, Blue & Gold Dinner
Our rescheduled Blue & Gold dinner was a big success! Once again, the Beth Israel kitchen staff, and brotherhood did a great job. Thanks to all who helped make it possible!
March 15, Indian Echo Caverns
The cub scouts had an awesome time exploring Indian Echo Caverns! We participated in a geology class, learning about minerals and earning our Geology belt loops. We saw the snow melt creating new cave formations!
Unfortunately our Blue & Gold dinner was snowed out! Our new Blue & Gold date is March 29. Now's a good time to earn those snow sport belt loops though!

Congratulations to our winners: 1st place Jon Gfeller and 2nd place Malachi Omotosho!
