Part of being a Cub or Boy Scout is volunteering to help others in your community. On Saturday, March 23, Hayfield Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts did just that by hosting a fundraiser for the family of Anthony Reid.

Reid died unexpectedly at his home on March 18. He was a fourth grader at Hayfield Elementary School and a member of Cub Scout Pack 50.

The scouts served pulled pork sandwiches, chips and dessert.

Cub Scout Leader Larry Andrist said there had been some confusion over the benefit. "We are volunteering our time to help with funeral expenses for the family," he explained. "But the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are not paying for the funeral."

He also said that he felt doing the benefit was important. "We live in a tight knit community where everyone has ties to one another," he said. "We just wanted to do our part to help."

Throughout the day they served over 350 people. "It was a great turnout," Scout Master Bryan Lee said.
