Alameda Cub Scout Pack 2 held its Blue and Gold Banquet last Saturday, Feb 21. What is the Blue and Gold Banquet? That’s easy! It’s a ceremony that celebrates the beginning of the Cub Scouts, which dates back to 1930. It is also a celebration of when Webelos (the highest ranking Cub Scouts) become Boy Scouts. The scouts performed skits and ate a potluck feast at First Presbyterian Church at 2001 Santa Clara Ave.
