On Saturday, Cub Scout Packs 100 and 192 held their annual Pinewood Derby at Coleytown Middle School.
Sure, they used a laptop to tweak their homemade cars for peak performance. (Or maybe they were just playing Angry Birds.)
But it’s great to know that — in an age filled with demands like youth sports, music lessons, tutoring and god knows what else — something as simple as watching a homemade race car tear down a track still brings such joy to some kids.
I especially like the boy in orange, at the far right of the front row. That’s the spirit!
