Aiming for adventure

Cub Master Shelly Collins of local Pack 26 works with Pablin Jimenez on how to use a bow during a Boy Scouts of America event Saturday at the New Mexico Military Institute baseball practice fields on North Main Street. Families and children could get some lunch and participate in sporting and crafts activities while learning about local Boy Scouts of America activities. “Generally we get the word out through the schools,” said Patrick Smith, district director of the Conquistador Council of the Boy Scouts, “but we decided to open it up more to the community.” A similar event was held once before, with this one occurring ahead of Thursday night registration at St. Marks Lutheran Church. About 200 families in Chaves County are involved in Boy Scouts, said Smith, who added that girls can join one of the local cub scout packs now. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
