Pack No. 203 Arrow of Lights Den was presented with the highest award in Cub Scouts, The Arrow of Light Award on March 1. The Arrow of Lights Den has had an exciting four years working toward each rank that led up to the Arrow of Light Award.

Most notable activities have included: Planting trees for the Elachee Center, welcoming home Charlie and Company from Afghanistan, and supporting the Nothing But Nets Foundation.

The Nothing But Nets Foundation is a United Nations Foundation that provides nets to protect children from Malaria.

The Scouts learned that a child dies every 30 seconds from Malaria in Africa. Their efforts potentially saved 28 lives. The Arrow of Lights will join Troop No. 203 at Redwine United Methodist Church to begin working on their Eagle Requirements.
