On Thursday night December 22nd the Cub Scouts went Christmas Caroling at St. Mary's Hospital.  9 Scouts, along with siblings and parents sang to the patients in the hospital.  We then went through the Condominiums and caroled the residents there.  Before we went home we were treated to some delicious cookies in the cafeteria.  Thanks to the staff at St Mary's Hospital for letting us come, we really enjoyed being there.  In the photo Elred Nuxoll invited the Scouts in and sang along with us.  He sang a German Christmas Song to us.  In the front row are: Jordan Farnworth Noelle Biltz, Cecilia Biltz, Torry Chmelik and James Biltz.  Middle Row:  Jordan Quick, Travis Alfrey and Caleb Butler.  Back Row:  Keenan Shears, Elred Nuxoll, Matt Coppernoll and Cole Martin.
