Cub Scout Pack 592 of South Lake Tahoe celebrated the 75th anniversary of Scouting at their annual Blue and Gold Dinner Feb. 8 at the Horizon Casino Resort. Each Cub Scout prepared and served an entree as speakers addressed the Scouts.

Speakers included Bill Waits, Boy Scouts of America, district executive; Tim Rieger, Boy Scout Troop 594 Scoutmaster; and Jeff Payne of Lake Tahoe Community College.

The theme of this year’s dinner was “mining” and Payne of Mining Hobbies shared his knowledge of geology. The ballroom was elaborately decorated with an array of themed items. In addition, Cub Scout tents and camping equipment were displayed as a slide show presented images of the year’s scouting activities.

Pack 592 thanked Debbie and Don Goodyear for their nine years in scouting and three years as Cubmasters. They will be greatly missed next year. A special thanks was given to the Horizon staff, especially Joanne Hallert, Todd Howard and Jennifer Ures for donating the ballroom.

The Cub Scouts expressed appreciation to the businesses that donated to the event – Chevys, Subway, Port of Subs, Starbucks No. 6991, Raley’s, Safeway, and Charter Advertising/Design, Inc. They also thanked all the parents who helped organize the evening, including Eva Snyder, MaryBeth Carter, Janel Morales, Gina Curcio, Leslie Loomis, Patty Terrill and Randy Wright.
