SOUTHWICK – On Tuesday night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Southwick Boy Scout Pack 338 will be caroling to residents of Ahrend Circle .
According to Rachel Dunham, Scout Pack 338 leader, this is an annual event but last year’s caroling was cancelled. The pack has caroled at Veteran’s homes and soldier’s homes in the past and is looking forward to Tuesday.
“We’re excited to be able to do it this year,” said Dunham.
Besides singing some of the Christmas favorites, the boy scouts will also be passing out holiday cards to the seniors that they handcrafted themselves. The combination of both acts makes the event a positive experience for both pack members and the seniors of Ahrend Circle.
“Everyone, when they see the kids caroling, they enjoy it, and the kids, they enjoy it also,” said Dunham.
Southwick Boy Scout Pack 338 is comprised of boys aged five-years-old to 10-years-old. Throughout the year, Pack 338 takes part in community events like the Rugged Maniac, as well as taking part in summer camps, canoe trips, and picnics.
Last week, Boy Scout Pack 338 held a ceremony at the First Congregational Church where three boy scouts earned their hero badges. The three boys recognized an individual or multiple individuals in the community who have had a positive impact in their life.
