SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - On Monday, December 28th Cub Scout Pack 207 (Den 15) with Scout leader Jason Teal visited the South Plainfield Senior Center located on Maple Avenue. Carter Lodato, Connor Barry, Michael Teal, Roberto Reyes, Porter Herman, and Jet Olmsted performed skits for the seniors. “I love getting the community involved with the seniors, especially the youth,” said Tree Olano, Senior Center Director.
The Cub Scouts also played a game of charades which was based upon scouting activities during a camping trip. They acted out gathering wood for a fire, pitching a tent and collecting rocks.
“The seniors had a great time trying to guess the activities, “said Olano.
Their grand finale was a dance routine of "watch me whip, watch me nae, nae" The scouts were surprised that one senior actually knew the name of the dance.
“I find it very rewarding being a scout leader, “said Jason Teal. Cub Pack 207 meets once a month at Franklin School. “I hope Cub Pack 207 can return to the senior center,” said Olano. “It was a really fun day, not only for the senior, but for the parents who attended and the young men in the pack.”
