Fredonia Cub Scout Pack 267 recently held its annual Pinewood Derby race at the Fredonia American Legion Post 59. The Pinewood Derby is a Cub Scout tradition. The boys create their cars from a five-ounce block of pine which they carve, sand and paint with a little help from an adult. This year more than 30 cars made by the boys were entered in the race.
Winners from the Lion/Tiger Den were: first place, Samuel Wray; second place, Tyler Sullivan; third place, Jack Schroeder; and fourth place, Billy Lanski.
The winners from the Wolf Den were: first place, Jacob Sullivan; second place, Jayden Yerico; third place, Matthew Brown; and fourth place, Logan Perryman.
The winners from the Bear Den were: first place, Zach Walnicki; second place, Carson Kuzdzal; third place, Owen Caserta; and fourth place, Jimmy Beehler.
The winners from the Webelos Den were: first place, Colton Kuzdzal; second place, Matthew Wray; third place, Zach Dawley; and fourth place, Jack Swanson.
