Cub Scouts Host Armed Forces Day Luncheon May 20th

Cub Scout Pack 3013 would like to honor local veterans with a luncheon on Saturday, May 20th in celebration of Armed Forces Day. This will be a chance for the Scouts to thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country while raising money for the Gary-New Duluth Veterans Memorial.

As part of this celebration, the Scouts will be creating Veterans display inside The GND REC. If you are a veteran, or know a Veteran, that should be honored in this... display, we welcome you to drop off a picture and details of their service to The GND REC (Attn: Cub Scout Pack 3013).

We look forward to community participation and honoring those who have given so much of their lives to protect our own.

Thank you,
Cub Scout Pack 3013

We Need Your Help

The new GND REC is becoming the center of the community. The Community Center is completed and active.  Phase I has been completed with soccer games keeping our new fields busy.  The performance pavilion was the venue for four concerts in 2017 and the 2018 schedule is being established.  The dog park is completed and is actively used.  Much more is needed to complete our project.  Amazing people - people like you -  are asked however they can. 2018 construction is focused on Phase 2 & 3 of our project will be started and are accepting donations to keep the project rolling.
