Tom Nestor Scholarship

Tom Nestor, an Eagle Scout from Wakefield's Troop 701, tragically passed away last month in a skiing accident.  Many of our boys met him last year when he came to a Pack Meeting to teach the boys about proper handling of the American flag.   Tom was an exemplary Scout and a terrific young man.  In his memory, the Tom Nestor Scholarship has been started has been started under the auspices of the Wakefield Citizen's Scholarship Foundation (CSF). 

Our Pack will be making a donation and we ask all of you to consider donating as well.  We will be collecting donations at our Pack Meeting next week -- no amount is too small.  We will also have a sympathy card available for all Cub Scout families to sign.

There will also be a fundraiser for Tom's Scholarship at Kelly's Roast Beef in Saugus (Route 1 at Lynn Fells Parkway) on Monday of next week, January 10. With the attached coupon, 25 percent of your purchase will be donated to the Scholarship fund.  Please consider attending -- it's a "dinner out" for a good cause.
