Wayland Cub Scouts Pack 1021 Fundraiser
By Jasmine Willis

WAYLAND, NY — The Wayland Cub Scouts Pack 1021 held its Pasta and Basket Raffle Fundraiser at the Wayland American Legion on Jan. 29. Alicia Gunther, Wayland Cub Scouts Pack 1021 scout leader said the cub scouts need to raise money for the big trip to the Buffalo Naval Park and Buffalo Zoo this summer.

“The money we raise from this fundraiser and our chicken barbecue in the spring will go towards camp, the pinewood derby and our big trip this summer. We had the family of the scouts put together the baskets for the raffle,” she said. “We try to have something for everyone at these things.”

Gunther said the cub scouts are eager to go on the big educational and historic adventure to the Buffalo Naval Park. Most of these cub scouts are used to going to the local Diny Doo Petting Zoo and Pony Rides Too. Many of them have never been to the city zoos. She is looking forward to bringing them all there to show them exotic animals.

“We have 15 active scouts in the pack now. We are always looking for more to join our team. If anyone is interested in being a member, they can always contact me. We will take anyone no matter where they are. If their parents are willing to make the drive to our pack meetings, we will take them. We accept from kindergarten to fifth grade aged children,” she said.

Gunther added the pack will have a Pack 1021 Pinewood Derby in March at the Wayland
American Legion again. The pack will include veterans in the derby like last year.

Anyone who couldn’t make it to the fundraiser but would still like to donate to Wayland Cub Scouts Pack 1021 can contact Gunther at 585-957-6883 for more information.
