Cub Scout Pack 17 in Williamsport recently held its annual Blue and Gold Banquet. The event opened with an invocation conducted by the Rev. Susan Boehl, pastor of Williamsport United Methodist Church on Church Street. The church is the charter organization for Williamsport's Cub Scouts (ages 6 to 11), and Boy Scouts (ages 12 to 18).  Cub Scouts received patches and awards, and their den leaders were recognized and thanked. Scouting is a volunteer organization, so everyone, from the committee members to the parents, contributes to the success of the program.    This year's special guests were the Potamac Dancers from Venturing Crew 2 in Hagerstown, who demonstrated Native-American dance in traditional regalia.  The banquet concluded with the Cub Scout graduation of three Webelos.
