“Extra, Extra: Read All About It!” Cub Scouts Visit Printing Press!


Den 6 cubs simulate an editorial meeting as they learn about how a reporter gathers information for a story.

Den 6 Cub Scouts of Pack 7 do! It took less than one second to print this copy of the Garden City News! This is just one of many interesting facts the scouts learned when they visited Richner Printing Services in Garden City. The full service printing company prints several publications, including the Garden City News. Kevin Plaut led the tour, starting with a discussion on how reporters gather news that lands in the papers we read. The visit culminated with the grand finale: the tour of the printing press where the boys saw the operating machinery. The cubs and their parents now have a new appreciation of the work that goes into assembling the newspaper we read each week!

Founded in 1932, Pack 7 is the longest running Cub Scout Pack in Nassau County. Our Charter Organization is the Garden City American Legion, William Bradford Turner Post #263. The Pack meets monthly from Sept-June in GC Public Schools. All boys in first through fifth grade are eligible to join Cub Scouts. Please contact Jennifer O’Hanlon, Pack Committee Chair at 742-0845 for more information.###
