NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Cub Scout Pack 924 will meet for the first time this year and they'll do so without their flag and other irreplaceable items that are now gone.
The small, white trailer that held these items was stolen from the parking lot of Faith Life Church at 3646 Murfreesboro Road.
The church let Cubmaster John Stevens park the trailer there because he didn't have anywhere else to put it. Stevens is not a member of the church, nor are his cub scouts.
On Tuesday, he noticed it was gone and drove around the parking lot, hoping someone else had moved it. After a few minutes, he determined it had been stolen.
The trailer contained an American Flag, their Pack flag with 12-years’ worth of achievement ribbons, a camp entryway with the names of all the cub scouts who have earned their Arrow of Light -- the highest award in Cub Scouting -- their fire barrels used for camping, a dining tent used for camping and multiple awards that were to be given out to the boys for their summer achievements.
Pack 924 will have their first meeting of the year Thursday at the church at 6:30 p.m.
"The pack operates on a budget of less than $2000-per-year for over 30 boys – it will take us years to replace the items if they are not found,” Sally Spear, the pack's committee chair, said Tuesday.
Their trailer has yet to be found.
