Mrs. Williams and Cub Scout Pack 200, along with parents, helped clean up the overgrowth in the Backyard Exploratorium. The recent rain helped the growth of some unwanted vines and weeds. Great job! Thank you for your time and support!
A collaboration will continue as projects come up during the year.
