Cub Scouts Learn About Local Government

Cub Scouts Learn About Local Government

CAPTION: Washingtonville Cub Scout pack 717 and their leaders learned about local government with a visit to Washingtonville Village Hall on the evening of Jan. 14. Mayor Joe Bucco was on hand to answer the boys’ questions about civics as well as issues facing the village and the nation. The meeting lasted well over an hour with kids asking questions such as “Is the government shutdown affecting the village in any way?” and “Does the village allow solar farms?” Mayor Bucco said all scouts and their parents are welcome to come to village hall to learn about local government and how it is similar to and different from national government. He said he enjoys helping children earn their scouting civics badges. Shown here (from l. to r.) are: Chuck Alexander, Ben Alexander, Owen Vinarub, Washingtonville Mayor Joe Bucco, Griggsby Cowart, Lucas Juarez, Alexander Jacobson, and Griggs Cowart. (Photo provided)
