Webelos II-rank Cub Scouts from Crozet-area Packs 107 and 79 crossed over to become Boy Scouts at the annual Blue and Gold Banquet held February 25 at the Field School auditorium.

This is the first joint Pack 79 and Pack 107 crossing over ceremony.  With Pack 107 closing, the active scouts of Pack 107 are transferring to Pack 79.

The banquet was planned to be held at Crozet United Methodist Church, Pack 79’s home base, but when the guest list hit 125 the day before the ceremony, scout leaders knew they needed a bigger venue. Todd Barnett at the Field School came to their aid. More than 140 people attended and enjoyed fried chicken and a large cake.

Webelos II’s receiving their Arrows of Light were Zachary Conley, Owen Foster, Kevin Cheely, Jacob Jordan, Daniel Brown, Nick Hamm, Nathan Vance, Ian Lassetter, Owen Thacker, Max Somers and Josiah Walcott.
