Cub Scout Pack 4124 has a new home after being in limbo with its chartering organization. As some faith-based organizations and churches disassociated themselves with the Boy Scouts of America after recent policy decisions regarding its membership, the Knights of Columbus began dropping some of its 1,100 charters in 2015, citing the Catholic Church’s wish to strengthen the bonds between families and their local parishes, according to VoiceofScouting.org. Troop 1022 scoutmaster and Pack 4124 committee member Tom Benzshawel says they are thankful for the support they still get from their stable of volunteers and the Knights of Columbus, but also their new chartering organization, the Methodist Men’s Club in Sturgeon Bay.
Pack 4124 will host its first “Round-Up” as it recruits new volunteers and scouts September 24 at 6:15 p.m. inside the Sturgeon Bay United Methodist Church.
