Westfield Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting

The eighth annual Westfield Mayor’s Breakfast for Scouting at the Bridgewater Club received $28,500 in pledged donations on March 13 to help offset the costs of programming, supplies and equipment and training workshops and camps. There are seven Cub Scout Packs, four Boy Scout Troops and two Venture Crews in Westfield and surrounding communities comprising 422 Cub Scouts, 176 Boy Scouts and 12 Venturers in 2012. Last year, more than 3,500 hours of community service were volunteered by these scouts. For more photos, visit the Current in Westfield’s Facebook page. (Photos by Robert Herrington)
