We were excited to welcome Bear Scouts Pack 109 Henry, Omar and Mohammed to the newspaper offices last Wednesday. The impressively inquisitive Scouts attend Field-Stevenson School in third and fourth grade.

Their visit was followed by a trip to Brown Cow Ice Cream on Madison St. with troop leader (and Mom) Jill Wagner. Over sweet treats, the young journalists wrote up articles for their own newsletter. It’s great to see parents volunteering in Scouts and other organizations to make these opportunities happen for Forest Park children.
