Westfield's Franklin School Cub Scouts Pack 172 made cards and decorations for the troops serving overseas. The Cub Scouts are one of the many organizations and classes throughout Westfield, Cranford, Kenilworth, Scotch Plains-Fanwood and Mendham that participated in making more than 3,000 handmade cards, ornaments and decorations that were mailed all over the world by several organizations including the American Legion in Westfield and local mom Colby Sheppard, who sends out packages of cards sponsored by The Dental Family in Westfield and Oceans Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry.

Thank you to all of the school, scouts, churches and individuals that participated in brightening the troops’ lives this holiday season.
