Area Cub Scouts from Adams, Albert Lea, Austin and Lyle put their cars to the test as they competed against over 70 other scouts in the annual Pinewood Derby event held at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Austin on Saturday, April 29.  

Each year the Austin Noon Kiwanis holds evening Pack races prior to the district race for scouts to test out their cars and compete against the other members in their Pack and Den. 

 The culminating event is the district race in which scouts are able to race their cars with those from other packs.

Each scout is presented with a participation patch and trophies are awarded to first, second, third and fourth place for each level:  Lion (Kindergarten), Tiger (Grade 1), Wolf (Grade 2), Bear (Grade 3), Webelo (Grade 4 & 5) and Open Class (Siblings and Parents who are not scouts). 

 A big THANK YOU to all who support Austin Noon Kiwanis annual peanut sales and Pizza Ranch fundraisers.  These fundraisers allow us to “Support the Children of the World” in our local communities.
