Scouts Give back

Cub Scouts from Pack 51 decided recently to give back to the police officers who help protect their community. They put together care packages and presented them to the Pickens City Police Department on Saturday, Jan. 27. When the presentation was over, the Scouts also gave the department a framed copy of a poem. Above, Scout Zac Chapman presents a care package to chief Travis Riggs.
