Saturday, Pack 104’s Den 7 Webelos met online to discuss “What makes a Hero.” We discussed the characteristics of heroes and how the recent COVID-19 situation has brought to light “new” community heroes and how everyday people are stepping up to make their communities a better place. Children also designed their own super heroes, discussed Scout heroes (in their age range 9-10 yo) who have been in the news, and decided to award local chef David Guas, of Bayou Bakery a Hometown Hero award on behalf of the den.
When Arlington schools announced their closure, Chef Guas committed to providing free, healthy meals to the community through the end of the school year. Two weeks later, Chef closed his restaurant to focus solely on feeding the community. On May 18th, two representatives from the Den presented the award and certificate to Chef.
