ROCHESTER – Cub Scouts from Pack 164 of Albion, Pack 175 of Barre, and Pack 59 of Clarendon served as color guard for the National Anthem at Friday night’s Rochester Amerks’ hockey game. It was the final regular season home game of the season.

Albion has made this an annual tradition and this year joined forces with the packs from Barre and Clarendon after Cub Masters Mike Beach (Pack 164) and Steve Hickman (Pack 175) first discussed the idea in September during the elementary school open house recruitment.

Hickman then also reached out to Sarah MacCallum who is Cub Master of Pack 59. All three are Albion graduates and friends who now volunteer their time as leaders for the boys of their packs (their own sons included).

The Albion and Barre packs will again join forces in early May for their yearly trip to Mt. Albion Cemetery and St. Joseph’s Cemetery. They assist the American Legion each year in placing the small American flags at the graves of all those who served in the military.
