My best buddy’s mama, Mrs. Ellie Pipkins, was a den mother and leader of our neighborhood Cub Scout Pack.
Cub Scouts get to do some stuff, but nothing like the older Boy Scouts of America.
Most us were already experienced campers, but Cubs couldn’t go camping overnight. We could have back yard cook-outs and sharpen our knot-tying skills, but that was about it.
I guess you could say, that made us Boy Scouts in training.
First Baptist Church sponsored Boy Scout Troop 70 and a bunch of my Sunday School friends were already members.
