On Sunday, April 17, friends and family of Cub Scout Pack 36 gathered at the Peetz Community Center to celebrate the achievement of the Arrow of Light for Scouts Michael Ramos and Brenden Shepard.  The Arrow of Light is the highest award a Cub Scout can receive.

The festivities began with the flag ceremony involving the cub pack, led by Cubmaster Dave Vallier. Craig Herboldsheimer, pack committee chairman, welcomed everyone and introduced the adult pack committee members Robyn Schumacher and Keli Hawkins. He then introduced the two scouts, who gave their name, rank and favorite activity for the year.

Randy Kissell, Webelos leader, awarded the Webelos Activity Pins needed to complete the last requirement for the Arrow of Light to Ramos and Shepard. The Arrow of Light Ceremony was led by Scoutmaster Randy Kissell, who explained the meaning of the Arrow of Light symbol, which is the only Cub Scout badge a boy can wear on the Boy Scout uniform.

The new Boy Scout Troop Leaders were introduced:  Randy Kissell, Scoutmaster; Ben Kissell, Asst. Scoutmaster and Sandy Vallier, Asst. Scoutmaster. The new Troop leaders then helped in the bridging ceremony of Shepard and Ramos from Cub Scouts to Boys Scouts. It has been several years since Peetz has had a Boy Scout Troop.

Pack 36 and new Troop 36 are both being sponsored by the Peetz Lions Club, LuAnn Schumacher, sponsor representative.

After the ceremony, refreshments were served to those in attendance.
