The Washington County district recently hosted an outdoors Cub Scout activity at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center off Sharpsburg Pike, seven miles south of Hagerstown.

Approximately 100 Cub Scouts and their siblings attended the Cub Scout Fling.

The children participated in archery, BB gun shooting, creating and launching water rockets from 2-liter bottles, barrel train rides, creating a craft and several carnival-type games of skill. The Mason-Dixon climbing wall was operated by the council staff.

The Washington County Sheriff's Department's tactical vehicle was available for the children to visit.

Each child was given a "passport" to visit each area to learn of the "12 Core Values" in Cub Scouts, such as courage, citizenship, faith, health and fitness, etc.

After the "passport" was completed, the child received a patch.

Dan Horn, cubmaster of Pack 58, chaired the event with assistance from Paul Rhodes, Sandy Miner, Sheri Bailey, Mo Landis, Loretta Landis, Nioga Mills, Howard Overaker, Chris Dillard, David Ancell, Scott Paddack and Daved Paddack.
