Club Scouts
Unfortunately no information was submitted on the
Senior Citizen's Club. We include the following article from
the Stratford Journal.
Stratford Journal Thursday, March 30, 1967
The organization meeting for a Cub Scout Pack in Strat-
ford was well attended Wednesday night as 41 boys and their
parents attended.
Jim Heinle, District Boy Scout representative, led the
meeting off with a few enjoyable games after which the boys
adjourned to the gym for ping pong, basketball and games
while the parents were given a run-down on the purposes and
benefits of establishing a pack.
A second meeting for parents only has been set for 3 p.m.
Wednesday, April 5, in the Gym lobby. Many of the people
who were unable to attend the first meeting may thus find an
opportunity to attend this meeting.
Much interest and enthusiasm was indicated at the first
meeting and already people have volunteered their services.
The position of Cub Scout Leader is still open and here is
a wonderful opportunity for a man who would like to give
about 3 nights a month to this rewarding position. Here is just
the job for a person that would like to help the youth of our
community, perhaps a person who would like to return the
help extended him when he was a boy.
Boy Scouts
Stratford does have an active Boy Scout group. Unfortu-
nately, no information was submitted. We apologize for the
lack of information.
Stratford had a very active Jaycee and Jaycette group for
a few years. No information was submitted but we did receive
a photo copy of a Stratford Journal article, which we have
included below.

Night". The meeting was hosted by the Spencer Jaycees.
