Scouts and slices: BI pack hosts delicious get-together | Photo of the day 2.4

Bainbridge Island’s Cub Scout Pack 4496 held a pre-Super Bowl pizza party and outreach event at West Side Pizza on Sunday, Feb. 4, inviting children and families to learn more about Scouting, including the imminent new nation-wide initiative to welcome girls to the world of Cub Scouts for the first time ever: “Family Scouting.”

“I think it’s great,” said Pack 4496 Cubmaster Steve Grossman.

“I spent 11 years in the Navy. I was in the submarine force, and right as I was leaving we started integrating women there and that made the Navy better and this is going to make Cub Scouts much better — and I think put us in line with the rest of the world.”

Coed Scout troops are already common elsewhere, Grossman explained.

“In England it’s just Scouting,” he said. “They don’t have Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts separate. It’s just Scouts.”
