HOWE, Tex. --Elementary school kids flocked to their cafeterias all across Grayson County to sign up for Cub Scouts. Cubmasters talked about camping trips, archery lessons, and other activities for the boys.

The pack in Howe went to space camp at the Johnson Space Center. Parents attending tonight say their kids couldn’t wait for scouting.

Abbie Gregg’s two children both looked forward to signing up. Her 6-year-old son was too young last year, but couldn’t wait Thursday night.

"Tonight he knew it was scouting night and he just finished soccer practice as a matter of fact and came here and was like, ‘I get to join scouts today, I get to be a scout.’ So he's very excited about it," Gregg says.

Denison plans to hold their 'Scout Night' September 11th.

    The Scouting program is a wonderful thing for boys. My sons were in Scouting in western Colorado, and they have great memories of camping on the Uncompahgre with their families. Two thumbs up for Scouting, and for anyone who volunteers their time to work with Cub Scouts.

    Hats off to the wonderful leaders who give so much to make scouting possible. The boys gain so much from their experiences.

    Scouts is wonderful! My son has been a scout since 1st grade and we are so proud of him. Many opportunities await the boys who join.
