The Chesterfield Cub Scout Pack, along with assistance from Akzo Nobel Paints, spent three days painting the interior and exterior of the cabin and finished their project on Sept. 22.
The project began with the help of Howard Driggers on behalf of his grandson who is in the scout pack.
Driggers’ daughter, Natalie, asked him to help makeover the cabin.
Driggers agreed and sought the help of the paint company for whom he worked with for 34 years. Akzo donated supplies and also helped in painting of the cabin in Chesterfield County.
Pack 650 Scout Leader Abbey Irvine said that the project was a great opportunity for the cub scouts to work together to complete a goal.
“We really needed the cabin painted,” Irvine said. “Howard got a company that he worked for to donate the paint and their salesmen came and painted it for us for a community project. We’re excited they came and did this. The cabin hasn’t been used in years so we tried to clean it up. We’ve been cleaning for a while, getting the brush out and readying it for painting. We just want to have a space for our boys to be proud of. Thy can come here and go to meetings and show off.”
The pack had their first meeting of the year last weekend and the newly painted cabin.
