Scouts from Valentine Cub Scout Pack 354 gathered recently to participate in the annual Pinewood Derby races at the San Marino Center. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the 75 participants who raced miniature cars they had crafted themselves, among them a tube of toothpaste, Pikachu, an old school Pac Man video game, and a fleet of police cars. After multiple heats, the winner of each grade level competed at the end of the day to determine the overall winner. Winners were declared in multiple categories, and refreshments were served to the excited participants and family members. The event was chaired by Tom Buckley and Boy Scouts from Troops 355 and 359 volunteered to assist in the event.
