Lycoming College business students to host Cub Scout event

Lycoming College business students invite area Cub Scouts to join them for "Sunday Funday Field Day" on Sunday, Nov. 13, from 1-5 p.m., at the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum in South Williamsport, Pa.

The event gives scouts the opportunity to take part in a scavenger hunt that teaches the rules and history of Little League Baseball and Softball, design their own baseball cards and meet scouts from other packs. Additional activities, such as hitting practice and timed sprints, may assist them in meeting requirements for the Baseball Belt Loop. The event will conclude with an awards ceremony, prize drawing and snacks.

"The museum is pleased to work with Lycoming students to offer the program," museum director Janice L. Ogurcak said. "It will acquaint them with the values of Little League Baseball and Softball, as well as provide a great experience."
