LACONIA — On March 10, Cub Scout Pack 68 of Laconia held its annual Blue & Gold Banquet. During this event 43 Cub Scouts were recognized with achievements and badges. The highlight of the day was celebrating a group of 11 Webelos Scouts that crossed over into Boy Scouts. Ten of the Scouts earned their arrow of light award, which is the highest award a Cub Scout can earn. Five Scouts — Tyler Lantz, Nathan Papavlo, Steven Poliquin, Tanner Shore and Bryce Wilson — also received the Super Achiever Award for completing all 20 Webelos activity awards. All 11 boys have joined Troop 68 of Laconia and will continue their journey through scouting.
