Scout Troop 60 and Cub Pack 60
Annual Pinewood Derby a Success
Boy Scout Troop and Pack 60 recently held their annual Pinewood Derby tournament in the fellowship hall of Trinity Community Church, UCC. The Scouts, ranging in age from 6-17, as well as many of the leaders built cars from a 5 ounce block of pinewood that they carved and detailed to their liking.
Once the racetrack was set up, the Pinewood Derby began. As Saturday morning began, the racers tested and tuned their cars for the best speed possible. After a short break for lunch the real racing began with almost 20 cars entered in the Derby. The overall winner of the Derby ended up being one our youngest Cub Scouts, Nicholas B, who never lost a race. Second place went to Ross L who is starting to work on his Eagle project. Third place went to one of our leaders, Mr. Tom Z. Fun was had by all. Congratulations to all!
Our Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs both meet at the church on Thursday evenings at about 7:30 PM. Cub Scouts end by 8:30 PM. Boy Scouts sometimes run a little later until about 9 PM depending on the activities scheduled for the meeting. If you have or know of any boys from 6 -18 years of age, we would be very happy to have them come out and give Scouting a try.
Create some life long memories! For more information on joining Troop 60 please feel free to call the church to contact any of our Leaders, Bob Little Assistant Scout Troop and Cub Pack Master, or Adrian Charniak Church liaison with Troop 60.

Flat Stanley Visits From Thousand Oaks, CA

Flat Stanley recently visited Trinity Community Church, UCC. Church friend Char D. played host to Flat Stanley who is friends with her 9 year old cousin, Alexandra. Alexandra goes to a school in Thousand Oaks, California where she met Flat Stanley. Char took Stanley to church, the Brookfield Zoo, and her book club. Char took pictures with Flat Stanley in all her travels and wrote about their experiences. Attached are some pictures of Flat Stanley at church. Char notes it was fun and if anyone ever asks to take Flat Stanley around, embrace the experience. Thank you Char for sharing your Flat Stanley experience.
A little more of the story: Stanley Lambchop and his brother Arthur were playing when a bulletin board fell on Stanley and flattened him. He made the best of his altered state by being able to slide under locked doors and other places. He could also travel in an envelope. This 1964 children's book was taken up in 1955 in Canada to help school children's letter writing. Each child who had Flat Stanley for a week would write a journal telling where he went. This spread to other schools until Flat Stanley was sent out to family and friends who would also keep a journal and then return him after a period of time. In 2005, more than 6500 classes from 48 countries took part.
