Pack 94 (Branchburg) Plastic Bag Challenge

Over the last several months, Cub Scout Pack 94 has partnered with Trex, the maker of composite decking materials.  The company recently held a program in which participants were challenged to collect 500lbs. worth of plastic bags.  The scouts worked hard to meet the challenge by collecting bags from our community and were rewarded after meeting their goal.  A new park bench was graciously given to the scouts by Trex, which then led the scouts to donate the bench back to the township.  The new bench will be installed at Challenger Field in hopes that it will be enjoyed by all.  The plaque on the bench reads “Do Your Best” which is not only the Cub Scout motto, but also serves as a reminder to us all.  The Scouts would like to thank Branchburg Recreation, the Branchburg Police Department, and members of the community that have supported the Pack throughout their collection.
