January’s freezing temperatures didn’t stop Raymond Cub Scouts Pack 800 by Briana Bizier

Starting in the sub-zero temperatures on January 15 and finishing several days later, the Scouts of Pack 800 volunteered their time and efforts to turn donated supplies into new shelving in Raymond Village Library’s storage shed. The project included both assembling the shelves and then installing them in the unheated shed.

These new shelves are a tremendous boost to the library, which had relied on volunteers’ houses and garages to hold books and fundraiser items. The library’s storage shed is now much more accessible and functional. This upgrade might be invisible to library visitors, but it is much appreciated by staff and volunteers.

“At the end of the day,” said David Fletcher, Pack 800 Assistant Cub Master & Webelo II Den Leader, “I just want the Scouts to understand that it’s through the actions of people who are willing to make a difference that we have a better world to live in.”

Thanks to the generous actions of Cub Scouts Pack 800, all of Raymond can now enjoy a more organized library!
