Jacob McDaniel, left, and Jake Whitehurst, right, get excited as they eye their homemade Pinewood Derby racing entries in the recent Pack sponsored race. The preparation and race day activities provide an opportunity for boys and their dad or other male role model to share an experience and have fun doing it.
The expressions on the faces of these boys reflects their joy. Mount Vernon’s Cub Pack 271 will host the White Oak District Pinewood Derby at the Methodist Family Life Center Saturday, Feb. 14. (Optic Photo by Lillie Bush-Reves ‘09)
