Lancaster Guardian, 16 January, 1942
On Wednesday week the 24th Lancaster (St. Chad’s) Pack held their annual party in St. Chad’s Mission Church. The guests included the Revs. R. R. Bell and E. A. Kerr, Scoutmaster H. L. Wareing ** and the 26th Lancaster Troop. After supper, parents and friends arrived, and games were played. The Rev. R. R. Bell told a story to the boys by candle light. Cubmaster Hewitt presented the totem pole to Sixer Harold Johnson on behalf of the Pack. Unfortunately, the Cub Flag had not been received from headquarters in time for the event.
The Grand Howl concluded a jolly party, after which prayers were said by Rev. Kerr.
