On two days over the long weekend, Cub Scouts from Pack 3 and their families tackled the big job of weeding, raking and sprucing up the grounds of the East Greenwich Free Library. The work, which was done under the close supervision of members of the Cindy-Wood Garden Club and longtime library garden volunteer, Mary Beth DuRochelle, was in preparation for the library’s annual meeting and retirement celebration of former director, Karen Taylor.

The library is a highlight for the town of East Greenwich, and a place that so many of our scouts visit on a regular basis.  We wanted to make sure that the outside was in great shape prior to the meeting.
The scouts learned how to identify weeds and how to properly remove them, including the roots!  This conservation and  beautification project of our hometown will help teach the scouts how their actions benefit the community that they live in.

Cub Scout Pack 3 is made up of boys and girls from kindergarten through fifth grade and meets weekly.  Find more information at
