Cub Scout Pack 101 of the Great Rivers Council, Mark Twain District of the Boy Scouts of America will host its annual fall roundup at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 8, at the pavilion in Hannibal's Riverview Park.

Cory Combs, Mart Twain District executive, invited boys in first through fifth grades to sign up for Scouting. “We will show them what Scouting is about and how it can make a difference in their lives,” Combs said. “We have campouts and all sorts of activities. Our first campout will be in October, with games and activities.”

The registration cost is $8 for the remainder of 2015 or $32 for the rest of 2015 and all of 2016. It will be collected that night, with an optional annual subscription to Boys' Life magazine for $16 . No one will be turned away for their inability to pay. Onsite financial assistance is available.
Scouting helps youth develop academic skills, self-confidence, ethics, leadership skills and citizenship skills that influence their adult lives. Scouting provides youth with programs and activities that allow them to try new things. It also provide service to others, builds self-confidence and reinforces ethical standards.

While various activities and youth groups teach basic skills and promote teamwork, Scouting goes beyond that and encourages youth to achieve a deeper appreciation for service to others in their community.

Scouting provides youth with a sense that they are important as individuals and promotes activities that lead to personal responsibility and high self-esteem. As a result, when hard decisions have to be made, peer pressure can be resisted and the right choices can be made.
