Scout food drive

Fans of Fort Lewis-based Boy Scout Troop 62, Cub Scout Packs 461 and 462, and Venture Crew 62 want you to know they collected more than 3,000 pounds of food and another $400+ in cash contributions outside the Fort Lewis Commissary over the weekend and donated it all to the FISH food bank in Lakewood.

The Fort Lewis troop, residents at Fort Lewis for 83 years, lays claim to being the longest continuous-serving Scouting organization on any Army or Air Force installation. (If you think otherwise, direct your evidence to my source on that one, the Washington National Guard’s public affairs officer, Maj. Phil Osterli.)
