Cub Scouts Car Wash


Cub scout pack 112 out of Murphysboro held a car wash Saturday with the proceeds benefitting the Murphysboro Food Pantry.

The scout troop, led by scout Master Scott Satterlee, is chartered by the Murphysboro United Methodist Church and will be celebrating the 50th year of its charter in 2010. Pack 112 does a yearly carwash to benefit a local charitable business, with all proceeds going to directly to the business they are fundraising for. This years car wash was located at the Murphysboro Food Pantry. This years car wash was scheduled to be a two-hour long event from 9-11 a.m., but lasted nearly an hour longer as cars were still lining up to get washed and sprayed down by pack 112. When asked of the approximate average donation Mr. Satterlee said between $5 and $10 and he approximated a total donation of a little over $200. Fifteen members of Pack 112 were there for the event, and they also had help from two scouts from Boy Scout Troop 4.

    I am so proud of these scouts. They picked the Food Pantry to receive donations from two different events this year. The Car Wash and the Festival of Trees.

    I enjoyed photographing your car wash, definitely a good group of scouts. Good luck with all of your other fundraising.
