Princeton Cub Scout Pack 43 took part in one the Cub Scout’s grand traditions, the Pinewood Derby, on Saturday, Jan. 24. Kids, with the help of parents, built their own car creations from a block of wood and then raced them on an official Cub Scout Pinewood Derby track against other pack members in a fun-filled competition that is a highlight of the year for the kids.
