Webelos Bridge from Cub Scout to Boy Scouts
Eight Webelos II Scouts (5th grade Cub Scouts) bridged over to Boy Scouts at the annual Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. The Scouts received their Arrow of Light badge, the highest award that can be earned in Cub Scouts, as the final act in their Cub Scout career. They then crossed the physical and ceremonial bridge to leave Cub Scouts behind and start their new adventures as a Boy Scout in Springfield Troop 711. Boy Scouts from Troop 711 greeted them on the other side decorating the new Scouts with the Troop neckerchief and slide.
New Boy Scouts include Jesse Brinkman, Scott Cyr, Creston Harvill, Camden Heese, Roman Rausch, Matthew Rudie, Gabe Schwendinger, and Evan White.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR NO WRONG DOOR TRAINING AND NETWORKING
Sarpy/Cass Department of Health and Wellness in partnership with The Nebraska Association of Local
Health Directors and The Brain Injury Association of Nebraska are coordinating a No Wrong Door
Training and Networking in Bellevue, NE on March 16, 2016.
No Wrong Door trainings have been developed by the multi‐disciplinary Veteran's Brain Injury Task
Force to assist community members, from a wide variety of professions and organizations, in serving veterans and their families. During this one‐day training, attendees will hear testimony from veterans
and their families. Experts in the fields of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury will also discuss how
military experiences influence the emotions and behaviors of military members and their families.
Finally, there will be resource representatives from our community partners available to answer
questions and provide support through the day.
Invited to attend are professionals and community members who have contact with, or work with
returning service members or veterans, or their families. Community members who have not
traditionally worked with veterans are encouraged to attend as well. There is value for everyone...
teachers, principals, health professionals, neighbors, clergy, employers, law enforcement, etc. It is a
great way to network with others who have a common goal.
For more information or to register for this one day event visit http://nalhd.org/nwd.html
No Wrong Door Training will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on March 16, 2016. Location:
