Mayor Ruben Pineda welcomed members of Cub Scout Pack 575 of the Three Fires Council to City Hall on Friday, January 5, 2018. The Scouts were interested in learning more about local government and the many aspects of being Mayor.
After giving the boys a brief background of his years growing up in the community, how he became involved in public service and some of the progress and challenges he has seen in the community through the years, Mayor Pineda answered additional questions posed by the Scouts and chaperones. He also encouraged them to work hard in school and strive for ways to contribute to their community through volunteerism.
The youngsters also shared information about their recent projects, including a lemonade sale fundraiser at their school in which they raised money for St. Jude’s Hospital, and their aspirations for the future.
A tour of City Hall completed the visit, with an invitation to return at any time.
