CLARENDON – Holley Cub Scouts in Pack 3062 had their annual Pinewood Derby race on Saturday with nine Scouts participating. They also had nine friends and family make derby cars and join in the annual tradition.

“The Holley pack is small but mighty,” said Meghan Reuther, the committee chair for the pack. “The kids worked so hard and made amazing cars. Even parents, grandparents and siblings made their own cars and raced in a Family and Friends bracket.”

The event was held at the Clarendon Rec Hall. Cub Master Chris Reuther and Leader Randi Keller out on the derby.

“All the Cubs showed they put a lot of hard work into their cars, displayed great sportsmanship, cheered on their competitors, and celebrated the victors!” Meghan Reuther said. “We are extremely proud of all the Cubs and their families!”

The scouts have had a busy year, visiting the planetarium at SUNY Brockport, having a Christmas party at Oak Orchard Lanes in Albion, collecting canned goods for the local food pantry, working on projects to earn badges and prepping for summer camp.
