Scouts Learn Early to Give Back, Have Civic Pride

By Carlos Alvarez EGP Staff Writer

 

A day scheduled for Montebello residents to help clean a local park turned out to be a hands-on lesson for a group of young cub scouts on what it means to have community pride.

Cub scouts from St. Benedict Church Cub Scout Pack 0476, along with their pack leaders and parents, took part in last Saturday’s (Oct. 7, 2017) “Beautification Day” at Montebello City Park.

They learned what it means to have pride in your neighborhood and city, and the value of volunteering for the good of their community.
